INTRODUCTION 


The  Abbe  genealogy,  as  here  piiblished,  is  the  consummation  of  Professor  Cleve- 
land Abbe's  life-long  interest  in  the  history  of  his  family.  Before  reaching  his 
twentieth  year  he  began  to  collect  items  of  interest  about  his  ancestors  and  the  col- 
lateral lines,  and  in  spite  of  more  or  less  interruption  he  has  continued  to  do  so  all 
througli  his  busy  career.  During  the  early  sixties,  Mr.  William  Weaver,  who 
was  then  editor  of  the  Willimantic  Journal,  began  the  publication  of  what  he 
planned  to  be  an  exhaustive  work  on  the  old  families  of  Windham.  After  pub- 
lication in  the  Journal  he  corrected  and  republished  the  sketches  in  pamphlet 
form.  Mr.  Weaver  died  before  his  hopes  were  realized  and  we  have  only  a  small 
portion  of  the  work,  covering  the  families  alphabetically  from  "  A  "  to  "  Bill. ' ' 
His  fragmentary  notes  on  other  families  have  been  preserved  in  the  library  of 
the  Connecticut  Historical  Society  where  they  were  deposited  as  a  gift  from 
his  son. 

From  time  to  time  other  members  of  the  family  added  to  the  items  collected 
by  or  worked  up  at  the  suggestion  of  Professor  Abbe.  A  few  years  ago,  finally 
realizing  that  other  matters  demanded  too  much  time  and  that  he  could  not 
arrange  this  material  in  final  form,  he  turned  over  all  his  material  to  Josephine 
Genung  Nichols  (Mrs.  L.  Nelson  Nichols).  She  has  arranged  the  data  in  its 
present  form,  and  added  to  it,  as  far  as  practicable,  by  extensive  correspondence, 
library  research  and  examinations  of  the  public  records  at  some  of  the  former 
homes  of  the  family. 

Collaborators. — Most  helpful  contributions  to  this  work  have  been  made  by: 
Mr.  Charles  E.  Abbe  of  Sara  Sota,  Fla.,  who  left  an  invaluable  collection  of 
records  about  the  line  of  Obadiah  Abbe,  the  basis  of  our  history  of  that  branch; 
Miss  Norah  D.  Abbe  of  Elyria,  Ohio,  and  Mrs.  John  Emerson,  on  Eleazer  and 
the  Abbe  families  of  Eljrria;  Miss  Julia  Maynard  on  the  Vermont  Abbeys  and 
other  New  England  lines;  Mrs.  Bronson  Post  Reynolds,  about  the  Jonathan 
Abbey  line;  Mr.  Richard  N.  Abbey  on  the  soutliern  lines;  Mrs.  D.  Stearns 
Jamison  on  the  Harris  Abbey  record  and  portraits;  Mr.  Charles  T.  Hendriek, 
whose  unflagging  interest  and  remarkable  ability  has  secured  materials  hitherto 
unavailable;  Mr.  Alden  Freeman,  whose  love  for  the  family  is  expressed  in  the 
beautiful  Thomas  Abbey  monument  just  erected  on  Enfield  Green;  Mrs.  Martha 
B.  Hanna  on  the  Pease  family  descended  from  Mary  Abbey;  Mrs.  Ashbel  Welch, 
on  the  Welch  family.  Lack  of  space  prevents  mention  of  many  others  who  have 
also  contributed  to  the  work  and  have  cheered  the  compiler  by  their  kind  replies. 
We  thank  you  all  once  more. 

A  family  history  is  never  really  complete  or  entirely  satisfactory;  but  we  feel 
that  we  have  gone  to  as  much  expense  as  was  justified.  We  have  made  this 
beginning;   may  others  continue  the  work. 

Professor  Abbe  had  hoped  to  make  this  genealogA^  no  mere  list  of  the  members 
of  the  family.  He  would  have  it  a  contribution  to  the  study  of  heredity,  so 
has  added  as  much  as  practicable  on  the  personal  characteristics  of  its  members 
and  has  included  many  available  photographs.  He  believes  that  the  study  of 
any  good  clean  family  will  bring  out  facts  just  as  well  wortli  following  up  for 
the  development  of  the  personality  of  the  nation,  as  are  the  facts  brought  out 
by  the  work  of  criminologists  and  social  workers  in  the  field  of  the  mentally 
deficient,  etc.,  which  show  the  immense  value  to  a  countiy,  of  the  study  of  inherit- 
ance of  traits  that  increase  state  expenses  for  caring  for  such  defectives.

vi  Abbe-Abbey  Genealogy 

Arrangement. — The  general  arrangement  of  the  matter  is  the  same  as  is 
commonly  used  in  similar  works  on  genealogy.  We  have  tried  to  avoid  unneces- 
sary numbers  and  to  simplify  the  work  as  much  as  possible  in  order  to  make  it 
useful  to  eveiy  one.  Few  abbreviations  are  used  in  addition  to  b.,  m.,  and  d.,  for 
born,  married,  and  died,  respectively. 

Dates. — Among  the  earlier  records  will  be  noted  some  double  dating.  Accord- 
ing to  the  old  calendar  used  in  England  and  her  colonies  up  to  1751,  the  year 
began  on  March  26.  In  that  year  England  followed  the  lead  set  by  most  European 
countries  and  decreed  that  after  the  last  day  of  December,  1751,  the  25th  day  of 
March  should  no  longer  be  reckoned  the  last  day  of  the  year  and  that  the  year 
1752  should  begin  on  January  1.  Accordingly  in  most  dates  prior  to  1752,  we  find 
the  old  year  continued  to  March  25  with  the  new  year  annexed  to  it  from  the 
first  of  January.    This  was  not  a  uniform  practice,  however. 

Spelling. — The  spelling  of  the  name  has  been  a  source  of  perplexity  from  the 
earliest  days  to  the  present.  Abbe  or  Abbey  have  been  the  favorite  forms, 
followed  by  Abby,  Abbee,  Abbe  and  other  variations  usually  not  authorized  by 
the  bearer  of  the  name.  In  arranging  the  data  for  publication  we  have  made  every 
effort  to  follow  the  usage  of  each  particular  family  in  this  matter;  there  are 
many  errors  no  doubt  in  records  sent  by  someone  not  wholly  familiar  with  the 
usage  of  the  family  concerned.  In  some  cases  close  relatives  have  used  different 
spellings,  thereby  adding  to  the  chance  of  errors.  The  records  of  the  Abbay, 
Aby,  and  of  a  few  other  families  have  been  added,  although  we  do  not  know  that 
they  are  connected  with  the  family  of  John  Abbe.  The  name  is  not  a  common 
one  in  England  or  elsewhere.  It  was  probably  a  name  of  local  derivation, 
denoting  one  who  lived  at  or  near  an  abbey. 

The  late  Dr.  Edward  Payson  Abbe  of  New  Bedford,  Mass.,  believed  in  his 
French  origin.  He  had  a  coat  of  arms  that  belonged  to  and  was  used  by  a  French 
family  in  Normandy.  This  coat  of  arms  is  described  as :  a  red  eagle  with  beak 
and  legs  of  gold  on  a  shield  of  silver.  In  British  heraldic  works  the  coat  of 
arms  is  given  as :  gules,  five  fusils  in  f esse  between  three  escallops  argent.  There 
are  several  crests,  viz.,  a  cross  crosslet  azure;  an  eagle  displayed  argent  between 
two  cross  crosslets  or,  each  wing  charged  with  a  cross  crosslet  gules;  an  eagle's 
head  erased  proper;  a  leopard  rampant  proper.  The  motto  also  varies:  "Spei 
mea  coelo, "   or  "  Confido  conquesco. ' ' 

It  is  possible  that  some  of  the  Abbes  came  over  from  France  to  England  at 
an  early  date;  but  we  have  absolutely  no  evidence  that  John  Abbey  was  entitled 
to  use  these  arms,  or  that  he  ever  did  so. 

Migrations. — It  is  a  source  of  regret  that  so  little  is  known  of  the  history  of 
John  Abbey  before  he  emigrated  to  America.  The  Heralds'  College,  London, 
began  a  search  for  such  information  some  time  ago,  but  thus  far  no  results 
have  been  reported.  To  us  it  seems  likely  that  he  was  of  or  connected  with  the 
Abbey  family  of  Staverton  (see  page  433). 

John  Abbe,  or  Abbey,  migrated  to  America  at  a  time  when  many  of  England's 
young  men  were  coming  to  the  new  colonies  either  for  freedom  from  religious 
persecution,  from  a  love  of  adventure,  or  simply  from  a  desire  to  better  their 
condition.  The  brief  glimpses  into  his  life  and  character  afforded  by  colonial 
records,  suggest  that  John  Abbey  was  of  the  first-mentioned  class.  He  was  early 
a  church  member  and  land  owner  in  the  New  World  and  his  descendants  were 
active  for  good  in  their  communities.  From  the  first  homes  in  Salem  and  Wen- 
ham,  the  three  brothers  of  the  second  generation  went  out  to  new  homes  in 
different  sections  of  Connecticut,  Windham,  and  Enfield,  where  each  family 
became  prominently  identified  with  the  life  of  their  town.  As  settlements  were 
extended  into  the  interior,  we  find  the  Abbeys  going  on  up  the  Connecticut  valley, 
then  turning  westward  with  the  tide  of  settlers  through  central  New  York,  then 


Introduction  vii 

on  to  Ohio,  as  that  country  was  opened  up,  and  still  later  on  to  Michigan  and 
eventually  across  the  continent. 

Appendix. — Some  items  of  historical  interest  which  it  was  not  desirable  to 
include  in  the  body  of  the  record  but  which  we  are  happy  to  be  able  to  contribute 
to  the  family  history,  have  been  placed  in  the  Appendix.  On  pages  406  to  434 
we  have  concisely  arranged  practically  all  collected  items  that  might  be  of  use 
to  a  future  historian.  Any  information  serving  to  complete  these  items  will  be 
welcome.

ABBE-ABBEY   GENEALOGY 


IN    MEMORY   OF 


JOHN   ABBE   AND  HIS   DESCENDANTS 


FIRST   GENERATION 

1.  JOHN^  ABBE,  born  iu  England  about  1613;  died  in  Salem,  Mass.,  about 
1689-90.  The  place  of  birth  of  John  Abbe,  the  founder  of  the  American  Abbe 
and  Abbey  families,  is  unknown,  but  every  indication  points  to  one  of  the  interior 
and  central  counties  of  England  as  the  home  of  the  ancestors  of  the  emigrant. 
It  is  not  improbable  that  he  was  connected  with  the  Abbye  family  of  Staverton, 
Northampton.  The  parish  registers  of  Stoke  Bruerne,  Northampton,  show  that 
there  were  many  marriages  of  Abbyes  recorded  there  during  the  16th  and  17th 
centuries. 

John  Abbe,  from  the  age  as  given  approximately  at  his  death,  was  born  about 
1613.  The  first  mention  which  seems  to  be  of  this  John  Abbe  is  on  a  register 
of  the  names  "of  all  y®  passengers  w*^*^  i^assed  from  y^  Porte  of  London  for  a 
whole  yeare  endinge  at  X™'*^  1635  —  Those  underwritten  are  to  be  transported 
to   Virginia   imbarqued   in   y^   Merch*^   bonaventure   James   Ricrofte   M^'   bound 

thither  have  taken  y^  oath  of  allegeance —  Jo:  Abby -^  go     ~~"    Although  this 

statement  says  bound  for  Virginia,  it  is  a  well-known  fact  that  many  of  the 
early  ships  destined  for  Virginia  landed  many  or  all  of  their  passengers  at 
other  ports,  even  in  New  England,  and  records  of  the  name  of  John  Abbe 
begin  in  New  England  about  that  time.  The  above  Jo:  Abby  does  not  appear 
in  the  records  of  Virginia,  nor  in  the  Head  Rights  for  lower  Norfolk  from 
1637  to  1666.  The  abbreviation  Jo:  sometimes  stood  for  Joseph,  but  there  are 
^  proven  instances  where  it  was  used  for  John. 

The  first  reference  to  the  name  in  the  Salem  records  is  on  page  11,  volume 
1,  in  1637,  or,  according  to  the  old  method  of  marking  time,  2d  of  the  11th 
month,  1636. 

"John  Abbie  is  Reed,  ffer  Inhabitant  &  is  to  haue  one  acre  lott  for  a  house 
next  beyond  the  Gunsmiths,  and  3  acres  of  planting  ground  where  the  Towne 
hath  apiDointed  beyond  Castle  hill." 

There  has  existed  some  confusion  regarding  the  various  freemen  of  the 
name  Abbey  and  Alby.  Benjamin  Albye  was  admitted  freeman,  May  18,  1642, 
and  John  Albye  in  Salem,  May  10,  1643.  These  were,  without  doubt,  the  two 
Albys,  John  and  Benjamin,  mentioned  in  the  early  records  of  Braintree  about 
this  time.  Benjamin  Alby  removed  to  Mendon  and  had  numerous  descendants, 
whose  names  occasionally  appear  in  printed  records  as  Abbey.  John  Abbey, 
sen.,  of  Redding,  freeman  in  1634,  may  have  been  an  Alby. 

On  the  21st,  11th  month,  1638,  John  Abby  had  a  further  grant  of  five  acres, 
location  not  specified,  but,  as  on  the  15th,  2d  month,  1639,  this  record  occurs, 
"Granted  unto  John  Abby  5  acres  neere  to  Mr  Throgmortons  hoggehouse,"  it 
may  be  that  the  first  was  the  grant  and  the  second  the  location.     Under  date 


2  Abbe-Abbey  Genealogy 

of  the  25th,  10th  month,  1637,  it  was  agreed  'Hhe  marsh  and  meadow  lands 
that  have  formerly  been  laid  in  common  to  this  town  shall  now  be  appropriated 
to  the  inhabitants  of  Salem,  proportioned  out  to  them  according  to  the  heads 
of  families.  To  these  that  have  the  gi-eatest  number  an  acre  thereof,  and  to 
these  that  have  least  not  above  half  an  acre,  and  to  these  that  are  between  both 
three  quarters  of  an  acre,  always  provided  and  it  is  so  agreed,  that  none  shall  sell 
away  their  proportions  of  meadow,  more  or  less,  nor  lease  them  out  to  any 
above  three  years,  unless  they  sell  or  lease  out  their  houses  with  their  meadow." 

Under  the  above  division  a  list  of  the  inhabitants  was  taken,  and  the  land 
divided.  Jo.  Abby  is  named  in  1638  as  having  three  in  his  family,  and  receives 
half  an  acre. 

On  the  23d,  11th,  1642,  ten  acres  are  granted  to  John  Abby  together  with 
several  other  ten-acre  grants,  all  to  be  laid  out  near  to  Kings  lot.  This  was  on 
tlie  Beverly  side  near  Bass  River,  and  on  the  15th  of  the  12th  month,  1642, 
it  is  voted  "ordered  that  John  Abby  shall  liave  10  acres  of  land  at  Enon  in 
exchange  of  10  acres  of  land  bounded  out  nere  Basse  River." 

The  lot  near  Bass  River  was  afterward  granted  to  Michael  Sallows.  The 
record  of  the  grants  to  Abbey  show  that  he  was  of  the  same  standing  in  the 
community  as  the  great  majority  of  the  early  inhabitants.  The  grants  were 
in  a  great  measure  made  Avith  an  eye  as  to  the  ability  of  the  grantee  to  develop 
the  land  so  granted,  small  grants  to  the  poorer  and  larger  grants  to  the  richer 
sort. 

In  1642,  Mr.  Fiske  organized  a  church  at  Enon  and  the  following  year  the 
name  Enon  was  changed  to  Wenham,  while  a  permanent  church  organization 
was  effected  in  1644. 

In  1644,  under  date  of  the  13th,  6th  month,  it  was  agreed  that  John  Abby 
"shall  have  all  that  wastground  which  lyeth  between  ye  end  of  ye  lott  which 
he  lives  upon  and  ye  meadow  which  belongs  to  ye  town,  leaving  a  poles  bredth 
most  convenient  for  a  way."     (Wenham  town  records,  Worcester.) 

Under  date  of  1653  is  a  list  of  engagements  with  Goodman  Haws  about  the 
mill,  and  "John  Aby  gives  a  day  and  a  half  of  his  labor  toward  its  erection," 
and  others  contributed  in  like  manner,  some  also  giving  tlie  use  of  oxen. 

Mr.  Fiske  left  the  town  in  1655  followed  by  a  number  of  the  church,  and  in 
1657  Mr.  Newman  was  procured  as  pastor.  Under  date  of  November,  1657,  in 
a  total  rate  of  £42,  19,  divided  among  twenty-four  persons,  of  whom  five  paid  a 
total  of  £14,  John  Abey  is  assessed  £1,  5,  which  was  about  the  sum  paid  by 
eleven  others,  but  two  being  less. 

In  1659,  twenty-seven  pay  a  rate  of  £46,  2,  of  whom  sixteen  pay  £1  or  a 
trifle  over.    Of  these  .John  Abey  pays  £1,  5,  as  before,   "in  corne  or  cattle." 

In  1660  he  was  assessed  as  Goodman  Abey  at  eight  shillings  toward  a  new 
meeting  house  or  repairing  the  old  one.     The  new  house  was  built  in  1663. 

Under  date  of  6th,  11th  month,  1661,  John  Abbey,  Sr.,  and  Edward  Waldron 
had  a  town  grant  of  land  to  be  equally  divided  between  them.  The  use  of  the 
title  Senior  at  this  time  helps  to  place  the  birth  of  the  son  John. 

In  1663  Goodman  Abey,  Sr.,  and  John  Clarke  are  chosen  to  join  with  the 
selectmen  to  make  the  minister's  rate  for  the  present  year. 

In  1669  and  in  1671  John  Abbey  appears  as  constable,  an  office  of  great  local 
power  and  responsibility. 

April  3,  1675,  John  Abbe  deeded  10  acres  of  land  to  his  son  Samuel,  Thomas, 
John,  and  Maiy  Abbe,  being  witnesses.  John  Abbe,  sen.,  was  a  witness  to  the 
will  of  Edw<i  Walden  of  Salem,  4th  month,  1679. 

In  1683,  John  Abbey,  who  had  been  supporting  his  son  Thomas,  who  lived 
with  him  and  cared  for  him,  dismissed  Thomas  on  account  of  his  bad  behavior 
and  called  his  son  John,  junior,  to  take  charge  of  him  and  his  affairs.  The  son, 
John,  proceeded  early  to  build  a  new  house,  as  the  old  one  was  unfit  to  live  in.

John  Abbe  married    (1)    MARY  .     She  was  born  in  England  about 

1615-20,  and  died  in  Wenham,  Mass.,  September  6,  1672.  ''Mary,  the  wife  of 
John  Abbey,  senr.  dyed  the  9  Sept.  1672";  Wenham  records.  She  was 
doubtless  the  mother  of  all  of  his  children.  Her  name  is  given  as  Mary  Loring, 
by  Frederick  Orr  Woodruff,  who  says  that  the  name  was  found  on  Enfield  records 
bv  one  who  made  researches  for  him  there.

SECOND    GENERATION 

2.  J0HN2  ABBE,  son  of  John^  and  Mary  (  )  Abbe,  born  in  1636  or 
1637,  probably  in  Salem,  Mass.,  died  suddenly,  December  11,  1700,  in  Windham, 
Conn.  As  early  as  1663,  he  was  one  of  three  to  oversee  the  Town's  Common 
and  to  resist  encroachments  on  the  timber.  He  may  be  the  John  Abbe  who 
was  constable  in  1669.  He  is  first  described  as  a  yeoman  of  Wenham,  and  was 
admitted  to  freedom  by  the  court  at  Boston,  May  11,  1670.  In  a  document 
of  1683,  his  father  designated  him  as  the  heir  to  his  estate  in  Wenham  upon 
the  condition  of  his  caring  for  his  father  and  mother  in  their  old  age.  He 
apparently  resided  upon  this  estate  until  about  1696. 

The  following  items  from  the  inventory  of  Robert  Macklaflin  of  Wenham, 
September  19,  1690,  doubtless  refer  to  this  John  Abbe: 

To  Jno.  Abbe  for  nursing — £1 

To  Jno.  Abbe  more  for  tending  the  swine 

for  fatting — sl6-d3 
To  John  Abbe  due  for  worke  to  save 

the  corne  &  thresh  the  ry  &  killing  the 

swine  &  carrying  them  to  Salem  &  about  fencing, 

fl-sl8-tl6. 

March  9,  1694-5,  he  sold  to  Francis  Wainwright  a  house  and  lands  in  Wen- 
ham, 50  acres  in  all;  and  in  the  following  year,  February  21,  he  had  a  deed 
of  the  same  property  back  from  Wainwright.  In  1696  he  disposed  of  his 
property  in  Wenham  and  j^urchased  of  Lieutenant  Exercise  Conant,  July  13, 
1696,  for  £70,  silver  money,  home  lot  number  7,  at  Windham  Centre,  with  the 
1000-acre  right  belonging,  dwelling  house,  etc.  May  23,  1695,  Jo.  Abbey  was  a 
witness  to  a  deed  of  Exercise  and  Sarah  Conant  of  Beverly  (Essex  Deeds,  Vol- 
ume 2,  page  101).  He  sold  his  farm  in  Wenham,  30  acres  with  buildings,  to 
Nathaniel  Wainwi'ight,  October  19,  1696,  for  £130.  He  probably  soon  after 
removed  to  Windham,  Conn.,  for  on  December  9,  1696,  he  was  admitted  a 
freeman  of  that  town  as  John  Abbe,  Sen',  of  Windham.  He  and  his  wife, 
Hannah,  were  dismissed  from  the  Wenham  Church  to  that  of  Windham  by  a 
letter  of  October  28,  1700,  and  were  both  original  members  of  the  first  church 
in  Windham  at  its  organization,  December  10,  1700.

John-  Abbe  married  (1)  .     Isaac  Goodale,  who  was  perhaps  the  son  of 

Isaac  and  Patience  Goodale,  called  John  Abbe  his  nnele,  so  this  first  w^ife  may 
have  been  a  Goodale.  There  were  also  intermarriages  between  the  Killams  and 
Goodales.

3.  SAMUEL-  ABBE,  son  of  Johni  Abbe,  born  probably  at  Wenham,  Mass., 
about  1646,  or  soon  after  his  father's  settlement  there;  died  in  Windham, 
Conn.,  March,  1697-8.  His  name  first  appears  in  the  Wenham  records  at  the 
time  of  his  marriage.  "Samuel  Abby  and  Mary  Knowlton  maryed  the  12th 
October  1672."  He  received  a  grant  of  ten  acres  of  land  in  Wenham,  and  land 
to  set  his  house  upon,  from  his  father,  John  Abbey,  and  wife,  Mary,  April  3, 
1675,  his  brethren  to  have  the  refusal  of  the  place  if  he  should  sell  (Essex 
Deeds,  15:150).  Samuel  and  his  wife,  Mary,  were  communicants  of  the  church 
in  Wenham  in  1674.  He  was  a  land  surveyor  in  1676  and  appears  upon  the 
town  records  as  a  husbandman,  made  freeman,  October  3,  1680  (Massachusetts 
Records,  5:540).    He  was  named  in  his  father's  will,  1683. 

A  map  of  Salem  dwellings  in  1692,  published  in  Volume  I  of  Upham's  Salem 
Witchcraft,  shows  the  location  of  Samuel  Abbey's  house,  number  114  on  a 
plot  in  the  south-west  part,  east  of  Bald  Hill,  within  the  500  acres  laid  out 
to  Robert  Goodell  in  1652  and  its  subsequent  additions. 

On  November  1,  1682,  Samuel  Abbey  bought  of  Lott  Killam  and  wife,  Hannah, 
of  Salem,  he  being  then  of  Wenham,  6  acres  in  Salem  on  Norrice's  Brook 
(12:112),  and  also  bought  of  James  Stimpson  and  wife,  Priscilla,  who  had  been 
the  widow  of  Isaac  Goodell,  at  the  same  place,  some  land  in  1684  (12:113).  On 
April  3,  1697,  he  and  his  wife,  Mary,  sold  those  lands  described  as  a  dwelling 
house,  two  orchards,  and  seventeen  acres  in  Salem,  bounding  Anthony  Needham, 
John  Waleott,  Isaac  Goodale,  Samuel  Goodale,  Abraham  Smith,  Abel  Gardner, 
Joseph  Flint,  and  also  six  acres  on  Norrice's  Brook,  and  two  acres  bought  of 
James  Stimpson,  to  Zachariah  White  of  Lynn,  all  for  £130  (12:147),  The 
above  James  Stimpson  was  of  Reading  and  had  married  the  widow  of  the  elder 
Isaac  Goodell.  At  the  time  of  Goodell 's  death  in  1680,  the  widow  was  adminis- 
tratrix and  Samuel  Abbey  was  one  of  her  sureties.  He  was  then  probably  of 
Salem  or  possibly  Topsfield. 

He  was  admitted  freeman  of  Salem  Village,  March  22,  1689-90.  He  and  his 
wife  were  dismissed  from  the  Salem  Church  September  15,  1689,  to  unite  in 
forming  one  at  Salem  Village;  the  date  of  its  formation  being  November  15, 
1689.  Salem  Village  is  now  Danvers.  On  July  1,  1690,  he  w'as  taxed  at  Salem 
Village,  and  again,  January  18,  1694-5,  he  and  his  son  were  taxed  there. 

Samuel  Abbey  of  Salem  bought  of  Benjamin  Howard  of  Windham,  Conn., 
for  £22.  10s.  current  money,  half  an  allotment  of  land  (500  acres),  being 
number  2  at  the  Center,  at  or  near  the  locality  known  later  as  Bricktop.  He 
probably  removed  to  Windlmm  about  that  time  as  he  was  admitted  an  inhabitant 
of  that  town  December  21,  1697,  and  died  there  March  of  the  following  year. 

His  estate  was  settled  in  1699.  The  inventory,  taken  May  9,  1698,  gives  as 
legatees,  the  following:  wife,  Mary;  daughter,  Mary,  aged  25;  son,  Samuel, 
aged  23;  son,  Thomas,  aged  20;  Eleazer,  aged  18  (the  land  records  prove  that 
this  is  a  mistake  for  Elizabeth);  Ebenezer,  aged  16;  Mercy,  aged  14;  Sarah, 
aged  13;  Hepsibah,  aged  10;  Abigail,  aged  8;  John,  aged  7;  Benjamin,  aged 
6 ;  Jonathan,  aged  2.  One  record  says  he  left  a  son,  Eleazer,  and  a  daughter, 
Abigail,  each  8  years  old  at  his  death.  This  is  doubtless  an  attempt  to  rectify 
the  error  noted  above. 

Samuel  Abbe  was  living  in  Salem  during  the  days  of  witchcraft  and  was  one 
of  those  opposed  to  its  fanaticisms.  One  Rebecca  Nourse,  on  trial  as  a  witch, 
produced  a  paper  signed  by  several  ''resj^ectable  inhabitants"  of  Salem,  among 


Second  GenerxYtion  9 

•whom  was  Samuel  Abbe.  This  document  as  to  her  good  character  caused  her 
to  be  set  at  liberty  but  the  sentence  was  later  changed  for  some  reason  and 
she  was  put  to  death  as  a  witch.  Only  a  few  years  ago  a  monument  to  her 
memory  was  erected  by  her  descendants. 

Samuel  Abbey  testifies  as  to  Mercy  Lewis,  May  20,  1692,  she  being  at  the 
liouse  of  her  neiglibor,  John  Putnam,  jr.,  and  accused  of  witchcraft. 

Samuel  Abbe  and  his  wife,  Mary,  were  witnesses  in  a  witch  trial  in  Salem 
in  1692  against  Sarah  Snow,  a  Avoman  of  vicious  temper  who  had  lived  in  their 
home  for  a  time  but  was  dismissed  on  account  of  her  disagreeable  waj's.  She 
vowed  vengeance  upon  them  and  when  several  of  their  cows  and  hogs  were 
taken  sick,  the  blame  was  laid  to  her  as  a  witch. 

The  following  are  taken  from  Records  of  Salem  Witchcraft,  copied  from  the 
original  documents.  Volume  1,  pages  24  and  25.

Warrant  for  Sarah  Good  was  given  at  Salem,  February  29,  1691-2,  in  response 
to  complaints  of  Sarah  Vibber,  Abigail  Williams,  Elizabeth  Hubbard,  Ann

malign  practices  were  those  of  Samuel  Abbey  and  wife.

SamueP  Abbe  married  in  Wenbam,  Mass.,  October  12,  1672,  MARY  KNOWL- 
TON,  born  1653,  daughter  of  William  and  Elizabeth  (  )  Knowlton.  She 
married  (2),  April  27,  1699,  Abraham  Mitchell  and  had  by  him  a  son,  Daniel, 
who  was  born  and  died  December  10,  1700.  Mary  Mitchell,  formerly  Mary 
Abby,  was  dismissed  from  the  Salem  Village  Church  to  Windham,  Conn., 
September  14,  1701. 

The  following  notes  are  from  the  "Knowlton  Ancestry,"  compiled  by  Rev. 
C.  H.  W.  Stocking  of  Freehold,  N.  J.,  published  1897: 

The  name  Knowlton  reaches  back  traditionally  to  the  time  of  William  the  Conqueror, 
1066-87.  Richard  Knowlton  was  born  1553,  probably  at  Knowlton  Manor,  which  is 
situated  about  six  miles  from  the  great  cathedral  at  Canterbury,  Kent  County,  England. 
He  married,  July  17,  1577,  Elizabeth  Cantize.  The  last  of  their  four  children  was 
William,  commonly  called  Captain  William,  born  1584,  married  Ann  Elizabeth  Smith. 
They  had  six  children,  two  of  whom  died  young.  Captain  William  with  his  remaining 
family  sailed  for  America  about  1632.  He  died  on  the  passage  and  was  probably  buried 
at  Nova  Scotia,  as  an  ancient  grave-stone  bearing  the  name  of  WiUiam  Knowlton,  1632, 
was  discovered  there  by  a  land-surveyor  in  1839.     The  family  appear  to  have  moved  to

Massachusetts  the  next  year,  probably  to  Hingham,  later  to  Ipswich.     William,  second 
sou  of  Captain  William,  born  in  England,  1615,  was  a  member  of  the  first  church  in 

Ipswich  and  a  freeman,  1641-2.    He  was  a  brick-layer  by  trade,  married  Elizabeth , 

and  died  1655.    The  youngest  of  their  seven  children  was  Mary,  born  1649,  who  married 
Samuel  Abbe.

5.  OBADIAH-  ABBEY,  son  of  John^  Abbey,  born  probably  in  "Wenham, 
Mass.,  between  1647  and  1652;  died  in  Enfield,  Conn.,  October  28,  1732.  From 
the  inventory  of  his  father's  estate  we  learn  that  he  w^as  apprenticed  to  Richard 
Goldsmith  to  learn  his  trade  of  shoemaker,  and  that  he  served  Goldsmith  three 
years  from  his  eighteenth  year.  As  Goldsmith  died  in  1673,  this  places  the 
date  of  Obadiah's  birth  approximately.  He  was  an  early  settler  of  Enfield 
on  the  eighth  lot  from  the  south  corner,  east  side,  one  of  the  original  pro- 
prietors in  1682.  He  seems  to  have  been  a  prominent  and  influential  man  of 
the  community,  was  constable  between  1682  and  1717,  survej'or  of  highways  in 
1692,  assessor  in  1702.  In  1685  he  was  engaged  in  a  law  suit  wdth  Isaac  Meacham. 
At  Northampton  is  the  will  of  Obadiah  Abbey,  dated  September  22,  1732;  pro- 
bated November  14,  1732.  He  names  as  legatees  his  wife,  Sarah,  to  whom  is 
given  maintenance,  all  household  goods  and  moveables;  his  cousin  (nephew) 
Thomas,  son  of  his  brother  Thomas,  to  whom  is  given  his  Seantic  lot,  and  to 
the  former  Thomas'  son,  Obadiah,  house  and  land,  with  reversion  to  his 
youngest  son,  Thomas,  if  the  said  Obadiah  should  die;  to  the  last-named 
Thomas,  he  gives  farm  lands  at  the  Mountains ;  his  wife 's  daughter,  Phebe  Heal ;

his  cousin  John  Abbey's  oldest  son,  John.  His  cousin,  Thomas  Abbey,  and 
Elizabeth  Warriner  are  made  executors.  This  Elizabeth  Warriner  was  pre- 
sumably the  step-daughter  of  his  wife,  who  was  born  in  1686. 

Obadiah  Abbe's  holdings  in  Enfield  are  described  in  the  Enfield  records: 
Home  lot  of  12  acres;  23  acres  in  the  South  Field,  eastern  division;  7  acres 
upon  Sehantuck  River,  5  acres  of  it  upland  and  2,  meadow;  2  acres  of  meadow 
upon  a  small  brook  easterly  from  the  "grate  meadow";  4  acres  of  meadow 
by  grant  of  March  5,  1700;  and  on  November  17,  171  [  ],  a  farm  lying  west  of 
"Sehantuck  grate  meadow"  consisting  of  168  acres,  some  of  the  boundaries  of 
which  were  designated  as  "wh*  Oak  Tree  marked  with  the  letters  0  A"  and 
a    "Pine  Tree  marked  with  the  letters  0  A." 

See  also  under  Thomas-  Abbe,  references  to  Obadiah 's  property. 

Obadiah  Abbe  married  in  Enfield  after  1697,  SARAH  TIBBALS,  born  Novem- 
ber 29,  1654,  daughter  of  Thomas  Tibbals  of  Milford.  Her  first  husband  was 
Daniel  Collins,  by  whom  she  had  children,  and  she  married  second  Joseph 
"Warriner  of  Enfield,  who  died  1697.  Obadiah  Abbe  had  no  children,  so  far 
as  is  known. 


6.  THOMAS-  ABBE,  son  of  John^  and  Mary  (  )  Abbe,  born  probably  in 
Wenham,  Mass.,  about  1650  to  1656;  died  in  Enfield,  Conn.,  May  17,  1728.  He 
was  a  witness  to  a  deed  made  by  his  father  conveying  property  to  his  brother 
Samuel,  March  29,  1675.  At  first  he  took  care  of  his  parents  and  lived  on  the 
homestead,  but  about  1683  some  complaint  was  made  by  his  father  who  then 
turned  him  away  and  had  his  son  John  assume  the  charge  of  the  place  for 
himself  and  his  aged  wife.  Thomas  doubtless  went  immediately  to  Enfield, 
Conn.,  as  he  was  one  of  the  original  proprietors  of  that  town  in  1683,  with  the 
11th  lot,  east  side,  north  of  the  south  corner  as  his  home  lot.  He  at  once 
became  one  of  the  prominent  men  of  the  settlement  and  is  mentioned  frequently 
on  the  records  of  Enfield :  selectman  in  1686,  1689,  1706,  1707,  1709,  1710 ;  fence- 
viewer  repeatedly;  assessor  in  1705.  He  was  administrator  of  his  father's 
estate  in  1703,  and  made  his  father-in-law,  Walter  Fairfield  of  Wenham,  his 
attorney.  There  are  several  documents  in  the  files  at  Essex  pertaining  to  a  law 
suit  arising  out  of  this. 

The  case  is  that  of  Thomas  Abbey  of  Enfield  vs.  Peter  Lcgro  of  Wenham  for 
trespass  and  the  defendant  is  allowed  to  substitute  his  landlord  as  the  defendant. 
So  the  case  really  is  vs.  Nathaniel  Waldron,  who  held  the  lands  formerly  belong- 
ing to  John  Abbe,  senior,  and  by  him  given  to  his  son  John,  who  in  1696  sold 
to  Waldron.  Some  of  these  papers  help  prove  various  relationships  and  dis- 
tinctly call  Thomas  of  Enfield  the  son  of  the  older  John  of  Wenham. 

Thomas  Abbe  was  active  in  the  military  life  of  the  day.  He  was  a  soldier 
in  King  Philip's  War  and  was  wounded  at  the  Great  Swamp  Fight.  He  was 
sergeant  in  1711  and  lieutenant  of  the  Enfield  Trained  Band  in  1713.  Upon  the 
organization  of  the  army  for  the  expedition  against  Narragansett  Fort,  Major 
Samuel  Appleton  was  appointed  to  the  command  of  the  Massachusetts  forces 
and  on  a  list  of  the  soldiers  whom  the  Court,  in  May,  1676,  voted  to  repay  for 
losses  of  those  who  were  "damnified"  by  the  burning  of  Major  Appleton 's 
tent  at  Narragansett,  appears  the  name  of  Thomas  Abbe,  £3,  s.l6.  His  name 
is  also  on  the  roll  of  Major  Appleton 's  Company  in  the  Narragansett  Campaign. 
Thomas  Abbe's  will,  made  December  12,  1726,  probated  August  30,  1728,  men- 
tions the  following:  wife  Sarah;  son  Thomas,  executor  and  to  inherit  the 
homestead  and  57  acres;  son  John,  to  inherit  land  at  Scantic  Bridge;  daughters 
Sarah  Geer  and  Tabitha  Warner  to  have  the  cattle.  Witnesses  were  Obadiah 
Abbee,  John  Pease,  jr.,  and  Joseph  Sexton.  He  styles  himself  Thomas,  senior,  a 
husbandman.

Thomas^  Abbe  married  at  Marblebead,  Mass.,  December  16,  1683,  SARAH 
FAIRFIELD,  born  December  24,  1655,  at  Reading,  Mass;  died  in  Enfield,  Conn., 
November  27,   1742.     She  was   the   daughter  of  Walter   and   Sarah    (Skipper) 

Fairfield,  and  had  previoiasly  been  married  to  Needham.     The  Wenham 

records  give  this  record  of  the  marriage,  "Thomas  Abby  and  Sarah  Fairfield 
of  Wenham  were  married  the  17th  day  of  December,  1683,  being  lawfully  pub- 
lished with  the  consent  of  her  parents  Walter  Fairfield,  and  his  witness  with 
Moses  Maverick  and  Elizabeth  Fairfield."  The  marriage  is  recorded  in  both 
Marblehead  and  Wenham. 

Walter  Fairfield  was  son  of  John  and  Elizabeth  (  )  Fairfield,  who  came 
to  America  in  1638.  According  to  tradition  he  sprang  from  the  Huguenot 
Beauchamp  family  that  left  France  for  England  shortly  before  St.  Bartholo- 
mew's Day.

daughter  of  Thomas  and  Sarah,  m.  James  Pease.  Her  cousin  Mary,  b.  Sept.  16, 
1684,  daughter  of  .John  and  Hannah    (  )    Abbe,  was  the  one  who  m.  James

Sarah  his  wife,  d.  Oct.  15,  1705,"    and  the  will  of  Richard  Abbe  is  further  proof.

He  is  described  as  "of  Exeter."  It  is  the  belief  of  the  compiler  that  the 
marriage  to  Abigail  Severance  is  a  second  marriage  and  that  Joseph^  Abbe 
had  by  a  previous  marriage  had  a  son  Joseph,  who  was  born  in  1700  or  earlier

Wenham,  Mass.,  September  16,  1684;  baptized  there  before  1685.  Lived  in 
Somers  and  Enfield. 

Some  authorities  have  given  Mary,  wife  of  James  Pease,  as  the  daughter  of 
Thomas  and  Sarah  (Fairfield)  Abbe  of  Enfield.  But  Mary,  the  daughter 
of  Thomas  and  Sarah,  died  in  Wenham,  Mass.,  October  15,  1705  (Wenham  Vital 
Records).  Moreover,  Richard  Abbe,  son  of  John  and  Hannah  (  )  Abbe,  in 
his  will  mentions  his  sister  Mary,  ye  wife  of  James  Pease.  Her  mother  divided 
land  belonging  to  her  first  husband,  John  Abbe,  among  his  children,  June  16, 
1710,  using  these  words,  "moved  by  the  love  and  affection  I  bore  to  my  beautiful!

of  the  Pease  family  in  America  was  Robert,  who  man-ied  Marie  ,  father

16,  1770.  Records  pertaining  to  John  Abbe  of  Windham  are  necessarily  some- 
what indefinite  as  there  were  several  of  the  name  living  there  at  the  same 
period.  This  was  perhaps  the  John  Abbe  who  was  a  proprietor  in  the  drawing 
of  a  twenty-acre  lot  in  1707.  He  is  probably  the  John  Abbe  of  Norwich  to

Captain  James  Bidlack,  who  may  have  been  the  James  mentioned  above, 
married  Abigail  Fuller,  daughter  of  Stephen  Fuller,  and  emigrated  to  Susque- 
hanna, Pa.  He,  with  Robert  Durkee  and  Samuel  Ransom,  was  taken  captive 
by  the  Indians,  March  24,  1779.  He  was  stripped,  tied  to  a  tree,  stuck  full 
of  sharp  splints  of  pine  knots;  then,  having  piled  pine  knots  around  him, 
the  Indians  set  fire  to  the  whole,  piled  the  other  two  men  on  the  fire,  held  them 
down  with  pitchforks  and  tortured  them  until  they  expired. 

Sarah  Bidlack,  perhaps  a  sister  or  daughter  of  Captain  James  Bidlack,  mar-

ing in  the  flames.  Mrs.  Fuller,  with  some  others,  went  in  boats  down  the 
Susquehanna  to  Northumberland.  About  two  weeks  later  she  returned  to  look

unrecognizable.  Her  home  had  been  despoiled  of  everything.  She  later  returned 
to  Hampton,  Conn.,  on  horseback,  with  her  only  daughter,  Polly,  who  was 
then  two  or  three  years  old.  Polly  Fuller  afterward  married  Judge  Ebenezer 
Griffin  of  Hampton.  Sarah  (Bidlack)  Fuller  married  (2)  Asa  Abbott  and  had 
children.

18.  JOHN''  ABBE,  son  of  Samuel-  and  Mary  (Knowlton)  Abbe,  born  in 
Salem  Village,  Mass,,  June  4,  1692;  died  in  East  Hartford,  Conn,,  October  30, 
1790.  He  was  a  resident  of  Hartford  as  early  as  1710  or  1713.  John  Abbe, 
resident  at  Hartford,  sold  to  his  brother  Ebenezer,  land  formerly  belonging  to 
their  father,  Samuel  Abbe,  of  Windham,  October  29,  1713.  (Windham  Deeds, 
Liber  D,  page  328.)  March  12,  1718,  he  purchased  from  Benjamin  Hills  of 
Hartford,  8  acres  on  the  "east  side  of  the  Great  River,"  There  were  several 
John  Abbes  living  at  this  period  so  that  it  is  sometimes  hard  to  tell  which 
one  is  meant,  but  the  following  records  seem  to  pertain  to  this  one,  March  3, 
1731,  he  joined  with  several  others  in  giving  a  deed  to  the  Town  of  Hartford 
for  a  highway  which  was  later  known  as  Silver  Lane  and  on  which  his  house 
stood,  (Hartford  Deeds,  Vols,  5,  page  307,  and  3,  page  164,)  John  Abbe  of 
East  Hartford  was  one  of  the  inhabitants  of  that  town  to  protest  against  a 
tax  in  1769;  signed  a  paper  with  others  regarding  their  desire  to  settle  in 
what  was  known  as  "Western  town"  in  1733;  was  a  proprietor  in  the  Western 
land  and  signed  a  Tolland  petition,  (Connecticut  State  Archives,  State  Library, 
Towns  and  Lands,  IX,  278b,  with  his  autograph,  V,  238e,  V,  23b,  and  VII,  13.) 
Deeds  made  by  him  were  recorded  in  Hartford,  1736,  1738,  1748,  1754,  1759, 
1765,  and  1770.  The  most  important  of  these  is  that  of  January  15,  1759 
(Hartford  Deeds,  13,  page  37),  by  which  he  conveys  land  to  his  son  Nehemiali 
Abbe  of  Hartford.  The  name  is  spelled  in  various  ways  on  the  early  records. 
Abbe,  Abby  and  Abbey,  but  the  latter  seems  to  have  been  in  most  frequent  use 
among  the  later  descendants  of  his  family.

May  3,  1757.  The  following  records  from  the  Ashford  land  books  probably

10  acres  from  Joseph  Orcutt,  adjacent  to  land  of  previous  deed;  1761  and  1764,

The  inventory  of  his  estate  was  entered  in  Hartford,  June  2,  1757,  by  William 
Arent,  James  Comins,  and  Abner  Barker,  appraisers,  (Hartford  Probate  Rec- 
ords, 17;  32,  18;  86.)  The  estate  consisted  of  106  acres  of  land,  with  utensils 
and  household  goods  to  the  amount  of  £381-5-4.  The  Court  granted  adminis- 
tration upon  the  estate  to  Jonathan  Abbe  of  Willington,  who  was  also  appointed 
guardian  for  Mary,  aged  about  11  years,  and  Rebekah,  aged  about  3  years,

born  November  15,  1706,  probably  in  Salisbury,  Mass.;  died  September  7,  1757, 
in  Kensington,  N.  H.  She  was  mentioned  in  the  will  of  her  uncle,  Richard  Abbe 
of  Windham,  Conn.,  in  1737.  The  choice  of  Joanna  Abbey  of  her  stepfather 
as  guardian  is  on  file  at  Essex.  "I  Joanna  Abbee  of  Salisbury,  daughter  of

father  in  law  Mr.  Philip  Greele  should  be  my  guardian.  Dated  5  Oct.,  1724."

Man-ied  in  the  2d  Church  in  Salisbury,  February  17,  1726,  JONATHAN 
BROWN,  born  in  Hampton,  N.  H.,  February  24,  1700 ;  died  July  10,  1766.  He 
was  son  of  Jacob  and  Sarah  (Brookings)  Brown  and  a  direct  descendant  of 
John  Brown,  an  early  immigrant  to  America,  of  Scottish  descent  but  born  in 
London.  There  has  been  much  confusion  among  the  Browns  in  tracing  ancestry, 
due  to  the  fact  that  Joshua  Brown,  a  descendant  of  Richard  Brown,  married 
Joanna  Morrill,  on  December  8,  1726,  in  the  2d  Church  in  Salisbury,  Mass. 
the  same  church  in  which,  on  February  17,  1726,  Jonathan  Brown  had  married 
Joanna  Abbe.  Then  after  the  death  of  Joanna  Abbe  Brown,  her  husband 
married,  on  November  30,  1758,  Mrs.  Joanna  (Morrill)  Brown,  widow  of  Joshua. 
Joshua  and  Joanna  (Morrill)  Brown  had  at  least  eight  children,  and  Jonathan 
and  Joanna  (Abbe)  Brown,  ten,  but  there  were  no  children  by  the  second 
marriage  of  Jonathan  Brown  to  Mrs.  Joanna  (MoiTill)  Brown.  Most  of  the 
records  of  this  family  are  found  in  John  R.  Eastman's  History  of  Andover, 
New  Hampshire.

26.  OBADIAH-^  ABBE,  son  of  Obadiali^  and  Elizabeth  (Wilkinson)  Abbe, 
born  in  AVindham,  Conn.,  April  10,  1704.  He  is  doubtless  the  one  called  "my 
Cozon  Obadiah  Abbe  of  Willington"  in  the  will  of  Richard^  Abbe  of  Windham, 
1737.  Various  land  transactions  in  Ashford,  1725,  Obediah  of  Willington  to 
Richard  Abbe  of  Windham,  1731,  Obediah  to  Richard  Abbe,  may  refer  to  him. 
January  20,  1768,  was  made  a  deed  from  Obadiah  of  Ashford  to  his  brother 
Richard,  of  the  same  town,  land  in  the  westerly  part  of  the  town  of  Ashford 
descended  by  the  will  of  Richard  Abbe  of  Windham  ' '  to  the  heirs  of  my  honored 
Father  Obediah  Abbe  of  Willington."  January  19,  1768,  Ruth  Abbe  of  Wil- 
lington transfers  property  to  Obediah  of  Ashford,  land  descended  from  her 
uncle  Richard  of  Windham.  In  1767  Jeremiah  Abbe  received  land  from  his 
brother  Obadiah,  both  being  sons  of  Obadiah.  [Ashford  Town  Records  F,  11,

and  Jeremiah  Abbe  are  among  the  signers  of  an  Ashford  petition  regarding 
the  church,  1765.  Connecticut  Archives,  Ecclesiastical  Affairs,  XIV,  271  b.

Vt.,  which  was  organized  at  Mansfield,  Conn.,  August  21,  1761,  but  it  is 
doubtful  if  any  of  them  became  actual  settlers.  There  is  a  tradition  that  he 
served  in  the  French  and  Indian  War.  In  1763  he  was  commissioned  captain 
of  the  12th  Company,  5tli  Regiment,  Connecticut  Colonial  forces.  December  14, 
1769,  he  was  appointed  to  correspond  with  other  committees  in  the  county  and

lived  in  Windham,  althoiigh  the  vital  records  of  that  town  contain  the  birth 
of  only  one  child,  Mcrari  (Mexari  or  Miriam).  Family  traditions  and  names 
prove  that  Hezekiah,  Mason,  and  Richard  were  also  his  sons  and  there  were 
doubtless  others.  In  his  will  he  left  a  farm  of  90  acres  on  Beaver  Hill  in 
Windham  to  his  son  Merari  or  Mexari.  He  is  said  to  have  been  an  officer  in

has  it  Merari.  The  old  manuscript  of  Windham  vital  records  made  by  Jonathan 
Clark  has  it  Miriam,  but  this  is  not  likely  'to  be  as  correct  as  one  of  the  others. 
Received  farm  at  Beaver  Hill,  Windham,  by  his  father's  will.

opinions;  of  great  vigor  of  both  mind  and  body  and  a  match  for  anyone

became  known  as  Abbe-ites.  His  home  was  ever  ojien  for  religious  meetings

in  Windham,  Conn.,  March  6,  1720-1;  died  August  13,  1807.  He  was  a  mem- 
ber of  the  Church  in  Scotland,  Windham  County,  Conn.,  at  the  time  of  the 
Separate  movement.  For  too  free  exercise  of  his  gift  of  exhortation,  he  was 
summarily  arrested  by  the  ci\dl  authority  and  kept  in  Hartford  jail  four 
months,  only  increasing  his  zeal,  devotion,  and  opposition  to  the  established 
churches.  After  further  trial,  the  church  united  in  calling  him  to  its  ministry, 
and  on  May  17,  1749,  he  was  ordained  its  pastor.  "Though  deficient  in  edu- 
cation and  somewhat  rough  in  speech  and  manner,  Mr.  Palmer  was  a  man  of 
estimable  character  and  sound  piety,  and  under  his  guidance  the  Brunswick 
church,  as  it  was  called,  maintained  for  many  years  a  good  standing  in  the 
community,  comparatively  free  from  those  excesses  and  fanaticisms  which 
marred  so  many  of  its  contemporaries.  No  difficulty  was  found  in  supporting 
its  worship  by  voluntary  contributions.  A  church  edifice  was  built  a  mile 
or  so  southeast  of  Scotland  Village,  long  known  as  the  Brunswick  meeting- 
house. Mr.  Devotion  (pastor  of  the  established  church)  was  never  reconciled 
to  this  intrusion  within  his  parochial  diocese,  but  was  accustomed  every  Sunday 
morning  to  send  his  negro  servant  with  a  rescript  to  the  Brunswick  meeting- 
house, forbidding  Mr.  Palmer  or  any  other  unauthorized  person  to  preach 
therein  that  day — a  prohibition  which  only  served  to  increase  the  number  of 
attendants  and  fan  the  spirit  of  separation  and  opposition."

57.  JOHN*  ABBE,  JR.,  son  of  Jolm^  and  Hannah  (  )  Abbe,  born  1724 
or  earlier,  probably  in  East  Hartford,  Conn.;  died  there  about  1763.  His 
name  appears  frequently  upon  the  deeds  of  tliat  town,  beginning  in  1745  when 
his  father,  John  Abbe,  transfen-ed  some  property  to  him.  In  1754  he  received 
a  grant  of  3  acres  in  the  town  distribution.  In  1759  John  Abbe,  jr.,  Solomon 
Hills  and  Sarah,  his  wife,  and  Naomi  Abbe,  deeded  land  in  Hartford  to  George 
and  John  Buck  of  Wethersfield.  (Hartford  Deeds,  7,  226;  8,  22;  14,  348;  9,  559; 
10,  247.)  He  was  collector  of  the  town  in  1748,  and  signed  petitions  in 
1748.  He  was  a  private  in  the  2d  Company,  1st  Regiment,  raised  by  Lieutenant- 
Colonel  John  Pitkin  for  the  reduction  of  Crown  Point,  April,  1755,  serving  for 
28  weeks.  March  2,  1763,  the  Court  granted  administration  on  his  estate  to 
Nehemiah  Abbe  of  Hartford,  who  exhibited  the  inventory  May  3,  1763.  (Hart- 
ford Probate  Records,  19,  pages  55,  67,  111.) 

Married  RUTH  GOODWIN,  who  died  1782.  She  was  daughter  of  John  and 
Sarah  (  )  Goodwin  of  Hartford.  December  13,  1771,  there  was  a  transfer 
of  land  ' '  set  out  to  tlie  said  Ruth  Abbee  as  part  of  the  estate  of  Caleb  Goodwin 
deceased. ' '  A  deed  of  September  13, 1782,  speaks  of  her  as  '  *  our  honored  mother 
Ruth  Abbe  deceased."  Administration  upon  her  estate  was  granted  to  her  son, 
John  Abbe,  jr.,  of  Hartford,  May  28,  1782,  and  the  inventory  of  the  estate 
was  recorded  in  October  of  the  same  year.  It  is  an  interesting  document,  con- 
taining such  items  as:  Great  Bible  3/;  3  old  books  1/6;  silk  crape  gown  9/6; 
silk  hoods  and  velvet  ones;  string  of  gold  beads  54/;  extensive  list  of  dishes

58.  STEPHEN*  ABBEY,  son  of  John='  and  Hannah  (  )  Abbe,  bom 
probably  at  East  Hartford,  Conn.,  about  1727;  died  there  March  26,  1798,  aged 
71.  The  first  mention  of  him  in  the  deeds  of  Hartford  is  in  1749,  then  in 
1754,  with  reference  to  land  on  the  west  side  of  the  "Great  River."  Later 
transactions  were  of  1760,  1761,  and  1765.  (Hartford  Deeds,  7,  page  541;  8, 
pages  26  and  111;  9,  page  388;  10,  pages  36,  37,  174;  12,  page  436.)  His 
home  was  on  the  east  side  of  the  "Great  River."  Administration  was  granted 
upon  his  estate,  July  6,  1798,  to  Jonathan  Stanley  of  East  Hartford.  The 
brief  inventory,  recorded  July  9,  1798,  gave  a  total  of  £204-12-9.  The  widow, 
Mary,  received  a  share.  Among  the  sales  was  one  to  "Theodore  Abby  1  acre 
&  half  Home  lot,  being  the  same  that  was  set  to  wid°  Mary  Abby  as  dower  in 
s-J  estate."  (Hartford  Probate  Records,  Vol.  25,  199,  220,  237;  Vol.  26,  63.) 
His  name  appears  as  signer  of  petitions  regarding  East  Hartford  lands.  (Con- 
necticut Archives,  State  Library,  IX,  281d,  with  autograph.)  He  was  collector 
of  the  town  in  1755.  In  1791  there  was  an  epidemic  of  small-pox  and  there  was 
a  fad,  which  proved  to  be  short-lived,  of  whole  families  inoculating  themselves 
with  the  disease  and  retiring  into  seclusion.  Stephen  Abbey  with  several  others 
petitioned  the  town  for  permission  to  do  this  in  April,  1791.  The  privilege  was 
taken  away  by  the  authorities  in  September  of  the  same  year,  but  we  have  no 
record  to  show  that  the  petitioners  really  tried  the  experiment  and  with  what 
results. 

Married  MARY  (or  MARAH)  .    There  was  a  widow  Mary  Abbey  who 

died  in  East  Hartford,  February  1,  1804,  and  one  who  died  April  10,  1809.

and  1754.  (Hartford  Deeds,  8,  pages  26,  303;  12,  page  358.)  He  was  on  the

Fourth  Generation  48 

War,  and  3  lead  pounds  and  6  flints  were  delivered  to  him.  (Connecticut  His- 
torical Society  Collections,  IX,  84.)  He  is  credited  with  5  days'  service  under 
Captain  Ebenezer  Wallisant,  dated  April  2,  1778.  (Vermont  Revolutionary  War 
Rolls.)  The  records  of  the  Pension  Office  at  Washington  show  that  Eleazer 
Abbe  entered  the  service  in  the  3d  Connecticut  Regiment,  April  16,  1778,  and 
was  discharged  from  the  1st  Regiment,  September  29,  1781 ;  he  was  a  resident 
of  East  Hartford  in  1788;  bounty  land  warrant  No.  267  for  100  acres  was 
allowed  on  this  service  and  was  delivered  to  Joel  Barlow,  April  25,  1805.  He 
is  doubtless  the  Eleazer  Abbe  of  the  1790  Census  in  Danby,  Rutland  County, 
Vt.,  one  male  over  16,  one  under  16,  3  females  in  family.  One  of  his  family 
may  have  been  Benjamin  Abbey,  recorded  in  the  1800  Census  in  Rutland,  1 
male  and  1  female  between  26  and  45,  5  boys  and  1  girl  under  10.

63.  JONATHAN^  ABBE,  JR.,  son  of  Jonathan^  and  Mary  (Johnson)  Abbe, 
born  in  Ashford  or  Willington,  Conn.,  about  1725.  No  record  of  his  birth 
has  been  found  but  he  is  designated  in  his  father's  will  as  eldest  son.  The 
following  land  transfers  in  Ashford,  Conn.,  probably  refer  to  him :  Jonathan 
of  Ashford,  1785 ;  same  1793 ;  agreement  with  Job  Tyler  regarding  a  mill 
privilege,  1795,  David  Abbey  being  a  witness.  (Ashfoixl  Land  Records,  Liber 
11,  page  663;  Liber  12,  pages  14,  371;  Liber  13,  pages  15,  16,  17.)  In  1768 
a  call  was  extended  by  the  Church  in  Westford  to  the  Reverend  Ebenezer 
Martin,  and  Jonathan  Abbe  is  one  of  the  names  subscribed  to  the  covenant 
of  the  newly-formed  church.  He  shared  pew  number  18  with  Ephraim  Walker 
when  the  new  church  was  built.  He  and  his  father  had  been  members  of  the 
"Willington  Church  in  1759.  Jonathan,  jr.,  is  said  to  have  lived  in  Tolland,  but 
no  records  of  his  residence  there  are  found.  A  Jonathan  Abbe  married  in 
Willington,  November  1,  1774,  Mary  Weston,  who  died  August  11,  1775.  This 
is  possibly  a  first  marriage  of  his  son,  Jonathan.  There  is  also  recorded  in 
Willington  the  marriage  of  Jonatlian  Abbe  to  Abigail  Osborn,  July  8,  1756,  and

ford who  were  allowed  the  improvement  of  their  gifts  in  public  prayer  and

76.  THOMAS*  ABBE  or  ABBEY,  son  of  Tliomas%  jr.,  and  Mary  (Pease) 
Abbe,  born  in  Enfield,  Conn.,  April  11,  1731;  died  there  June  1,  1811.  He  is 
unquestionably  buried  in  Enfield  although  the  huge  monument  of  a  more  recent 
family  has  probably  obscured  his  grave.  He  was  best  known  by  the  title  of 
Cajitain  Abbe.  His  fu'st  enlistment  noted  is  as  Corporal  in  the  3d  Company, 
1st  Regiment,  May  25  to  November  22,  1758;  then  as  Lieutenant  in  the  7th 
Company,  1st  Regiment,  under  Captain  Setli  King,  April  1  to  December  1, 
1761.  (Connecticut  Historical  Society  Collections,  X,  pages  10  and  247.)  He 
was  commissioned  captain,  January  1,  1777. 

In  his   ''Quest  of  Ancestors,"   Mr.  Alden  Freeman  says: 

That  long  line  of  warlike  Abbeys  beginning  with  John,  who  came  in  the  "Bonaventure" 
and  settled  in  Salem  in  1636 ;  his  son  Thomas,  who  settled  in  Enfield  after  King  Phillip's 
War;  his  grandson,  Lieutenant  Thomas  Abbey,  and  his  great-grandson,  Thomas  Abbey, 
ensign  and  lieutenant  in  the  French  and  Indian  Wars  and  afterward  captain  under 
Washington  throughout  the  Revolutionary  War,  whose  service  I  was  invited  to  represent 
in  the  Connecticut  Society  of  the  Cincinnati.  On  the  Thursday  following  the  battle  of 
Lexington,  Thomas  Abbey,  on  learning  of  the  fight,  procured  a  drum  and  actually 
drummed  the  people  out  of  the  meeting-house  at  Enfield,  where  they  were  gathered  at 
their  regular  weekday  lecture. 

This  interesting  event  was  beautifully  commemorated  by  a  poem  written  by 
Benjamin  F.  Taylor,  and  published  in  the  Atlantic  Monthly  in  May,  1878,  and 
the  following  is  a  copy  of  the  poem : 

THE  CAPTAIN'S  DRUM 

In  Pilgrim  land,  one  Sabbath  day. 

The  winter  lay  like  sheep  about 
The  ragged  pastures  mullein  gray ; 

The  April  sun  shone  in  and  out. 
The  showers  swept  by  in  fitful  flocks. 
And  eaves  ticked  fast  like  mantel  clocks ; 

And  now  and  then  a  wealthy  cloud 

Would  wear  a  ribbon  broad  and  bright, 
And  now  and  then  a  winged  crowd 

Of  shivering  azure  flash  in  sight. 
So  rainbows  bend  and  bluebirds  fly 
And  violets  show  their  bits  of  sky. 

To  Enfield  church  throng  all  the  town, 

In  quilted  hood  and  bombazine. 
In  beaver  hat  and  flaring  crown. 

And  quaint  Vandyke  and  victorine ; 
And  buttoned  boys  in  roundabout 
From  calyx  collars  blossom  out ; 

Bandanas  wave  their  feeble  fire. 

And  foot-stoves  tinkle  up  the  aisle ; 
A  gray-haired  elder  leads  the  choir. 

And  girls  in  linsey-woolsey  smile. 
So  back  to  life  the  beings  glide 
Whose  very  graves  have  ebbed  and  died. 

One  hundred  years  have  waned,  and  yet 

We  call  the  roll,  and  not  in  vain. 
For  one  whose  flint-lock  musket  set 

The  echoes  wild  around  Fort  Duquesne, 
And  smelled  the  battle's  powder  smoke 
Ere  Revolution's  thunders  woke. 


52  Abbe-Abbey  Genealogy 

Lo,  Thomas  Abbey  answers,    "Here !" 
Within  the  dull  long-metre  place, 

That  day,  upon  the  parson's  ear, 

And  trampling  down  his  words  of  grace, 

A  horseman's  gallop  rudely  beat 

Along  the  splashed  and  empty  street. 

•  The  rider  drew  his  dripping  rein, 

And  then  a  letter,  wasp-nest  gray, 
That  ran  :    "The  Concord  minute-men 

And  red-coats  had  a  fight  to-day ! 
To  Captain  Abbey  this  with  speed." 
Twelve  little  words  to  tell  the  deed. 

The  captain  read,  struck  out  for  home 
The  old  quickstep  of  battle  born. 

Slung  on  once  more  a  battered  drum 
That  bore  a  painted  unicorn 

Then  right-about,  as  whirls  a  torch, 

He  stood  before  the  sacred  porch. 

And  then  a  murmuring  of  bees 

Broke  in  upon  the  house  of  prayer ; 

And  then  a  wind-song  swept  the  trees. 
And  then  a  snarl  from  wolfish  lair ; 

And  then  a  charge  of  grenadiers, 

And  then  a  flight  of  drum-beat  cheers. 

So  drum  and  doctrine  rudely  blent, 
The  casements  rattled  strange  accord ; 

No  mortal  knew  what  either  meant ; 
'Twas  double-grad  and  Holy  Word, 

Thus  saith  the  drum,  and  thus  the  Lord. 

The  captain  raised  so  wild  a  rout 

He  drummed  the  congregation  out. 

The  people  gathered  round  amazed ; 

The  soldier  bared  his  head  and  spoke. 
And  every  sentence  burned  and  blazed. 

As  trenchant  as  a  sabre  stroke : 
"  'Tis  time  to  pick  the  flint  to-day. 
To  sling  the  knapsack,  and  away ! 

"The  green  of  Lexington  is  red 

With  British  red-coats,  brothers'  blood  ! 

In  rightful  cause  the  earliest  dead 
Are  always  best  beloved  of  God. 

Mark  time  !     Now  let  the  march  begin  ! 

All  bound  for  Boston  fall  right  in!" 

Then  rub-a-dub  the  drum  jarred  on, 
The  throbbing  roll  of  battle  beat ; 

"Fall  in,  my  men !"   and  one  by  one 

They  rhymed  the  tune  with  heart  and  feet. 

And  so  they  made  a  Sabbath  march 

To  glory  'neath  the  elm-tree  arch. 

The  Continental  line  unwound 

Along  the  Church-yard's  breathless  sod, 

And  holier  grew  the  hallowed  ground 
Where  Virtue  slept  and  Valor  trod, 

Two  hundred  strong  that  April  day 

They  rallied  out  and  marched  away. 

Brigaded  there  at  Bunker  Hill, 

Their  names  are  writ  on  Glory's  page. 

The  brave  old  captain's  Sunday  drill 
Has  drummed  its  way  across  the  age.

The  church  around  which  Captain  Abbey  beat  the  long  roll  was  completed 
in  the  January  preceding,  and  stood  near  the  present  church.  It  was  used  as 
a  church  for  the  town  until  18i9,  wlien  it  was  bought  by  the  town  and  moved 
to  the  west  side  of  the  street,  where  it  now  stands  and  has  been  used  as  a 
town  liall  ever  since.  A  memorial  to  Captain  Abbey  and  others  of  the  family 
is  about  to  be  erected  by  Mr.  Alden  Freeman  witli  his  mother  and  sisters. 

The  Abbey  Memorial  Avill  be  on  the  Green  in  Enfield,  on  the  site  of  the 
church  out  of  whieli  Captain  Abbey  drummed  the  congregation  at  the  Lex- 
ington Alarm.  The  actual  site  of  the  old  church  is  just  in  front  of  the 
present  edifice.  The  design  calls  for  a  marble  statue  on  a  pedestal  surrounded 
by  four  marble  seats  in  the  Greek  style.  On  the  backs  of  these  seats  are 
inscriptions  commemorating  the  achievements  of  some  of  the  best  known  descend- 
ants of  the  Abbey  family,  in  the  fields  of  war,  literature  and  science.  The 
sculptor,  Sherry  E.  Fry,  used  as  a  model  for  tlie  face  and  figure  for  the  statue 
of  Captain  Abbey,  a  daguerreotype  of  his  grandson,  Seth  Alden  Abbey,  taken 
at  the  same  age.  Daniel  C.  French,  sculptor  of  the  ''Minute  Men"  unveiled 
at  Concord  Bridge  in  1875,  has  taken  gi-eat  interest  in  the  work  of  Mr.  Fry,  and 
loaned  him  tlie  simple  Colonial  suit  used  for  the  presentation  of  Captain  Abbey. 

Tlie  following  is  an  extract  from  a  letter  written  by  Seth  Alden^  Abbey  to  his 
son,  Henry  G.  Abbey,  dated  June  15,  1872,  telling  something  of  Thomas  Abbey : 

When  a  small  boy,  I  was  frequently  at  his  house  for  a  week  at  a  time  and  have  heard 
him  tell  many  a  thrilling  tale  of  his  hairbreadth  escapes,  hardships,  sufferings,  etc. 
During  the  French  War  he  received  a  commission  as  Ensign  in  the  Colonial  troops  and 
saw  considerable  service  against  the  French  and  Indians.  At  the  breaking  out  of  the 
Revolution,  a  volunteer  company  was  formed  in  his  neighborhood  and  he  was  elected 
their  captain  and  they  were  soon  ordered  to  join  Colonel  Willett's  Regiment  in  New 
York.  I  have  heard  him  say,  frequently,  that  he  had  chances  of  promotion,  often,  but 
his  men  would  not  consent  to  his  leaving  them.  When  a  boy  I  saw  many  of  his  old 
soldiers  who  had  served  during  the  war ;  and  the  neighbors  were  as  particular  in  address- 
ing any  of  them,  in  giving  them  their  title,  as  Corporal  such  a  one,  or  Sergeant  such  a 
one,  as  they  would  be  in  addressing  a  General.  Thomas  Abbey  died  in  1811,  and  was 
as  anxious  for  a  fight  with  old  England,  which  was  then  much  talked  of,  just  before 
his  death,  as  in  his  younger  days.     He  died  suddenly  with  apoplexy. 

Captain  Thomas*  Abbe  married  in  Enfield,  June  22,  1749,  PENELOPE  TERRY, 
born  in  Enfield,  February  5,  1729-30;  died  there  December  2,  1817.  She  was 
the  daughter  of  Dr.  (or  Captain)  Ebenezer  and  Mary  (Helms)  Terry.

from  Enfield  to  Tolland,  Conn.,  then  up  the  Connecticut  River  to  Hanover  in 
search  of  land  to  which  he  had  a  claim.  Being  disappointed  and  discouraged, 
he  determined  to  return  to  Tolland.  He  consulted,  however,  with  friends  at 
Walpole,  and  finally  made  a  purchase  near  the  west  line  in  Alstead,  N.  H., 
where  his  wife's  sister,  Martha,  had  removed  after  her  mamage.  He,  with  his 
son,  John,  came  on  to  the  land,  which  was  covered  with  hea^^  timber,  and  the 
first  tree  that  was  felled  parted  a  limb  wliieh  struck  his  head  and  injured  him 
severely.  He  was  carried  by  his  son  to  Walpole,  where  he  in  a  measure  recov- 
ered, though  he  was  never  perfectly  restored  to  his  former  health.

85.  JOSEPH"  ABBE,  probably  son  of  Obadiali*  and  Elizabeth  (  )  Abbe, 
although  his  birth  is  not  recorded  in  Willington,  Conn.,  with  other  children 
of  that  Obadiah.  He  was  born  about  1733  and  died  in  1809.  The  records  of 
this  family  are  somewhat  confused  but  it  seems  likely  that  all  the  data  here 
given  must  refer  to  the  family  of  this  Joseph  Abbe.  Norwich,  Connecticut, 
Records,  23,  page  436,  mention  "Joseph  Abbe  and  wife  Dele,  both  of  Spring- 
field in  the  State  of  Massachusetts  Bay  ....  received  property  from  our

Samuel  Pitcher  deceased  who  was  natural  brother  to  said  Jonathan,"  June  13, 
1779.    Joseph  and  Dittie  Abbe  are  also  in  the  records  of  Springfield,  Mass. 

MaiTied  in  Willington,  Conn.,  June  10,  1765,  DELIVERANCE  ARMSTRONG. 
This  marriage  is  recorded  in  Willington,  According  to  a  record  from  the 
descendants  she  is  called  Dilla  Pitcher.  Perhaps  she  was  a  widow  when  married 
to  Joseph  Abbe,  or  her  mother  may  have  married  a  second  time  and  the 
daughter  used  the  name  of  her  step-father  at  the  time  of  her  marriage.  She 
died  November,  1840,  aged  102  yrs.,  7  mos.,  15  days.

who  was  one  of  the  early  settlers  of  Eaton,  Madison  County,  N.  Y.,  in  1795. 
He  was  perhaps  the  father  of  Daniel  Abbe  who  m.  Esther  Nunn,  and  of  Shubael 
who  lived  in  Buffalo  at  one  time.  Nathaniel  Abbey,  who  had  a  brother  Orrin,

114.  RACHEL'^^  ABBE,  daughter  of  Joshua*  and  Mary  (Ripley)  Abbe,  born 
February  6,  1738-9,  in  North  Windham,  Conn.;  died  June  22,  1795,  buried  in 
Woodstock,  Conn.  A  lasting  memorial  of  her  patriotism  aroused  by  the  neAvs 
of  Lexington  in  April,  1775,  is  found  in  Woodstock. 

Rachel  Abbe  of  Windham,  now  Mrs.  Samuel  McClellan,  shared  in  the  patriotic  fervor 
which  so  characterized  the  women  of  her  native  town,  and  after  fitting  out  her  husband 
and  his  horsemen,  she  set  out  memorial  trees  in  honor  of  the  joyful  occasion.  Four 
sapling  elms  brought  up  on  horseback  from  the  old  Windham  homestead,  were  carefully 
transplated  into  the  soil  of  Woodstock — two  in  front  of  her  dwelling  and  two  on  the 
slope  of  the  adjoining  common.  Nurtured  with  care  and  pains  they  soon  took  root  and 
flourished  and  for  more  than  an  hundred  years  have  told  the  story  of  Lexington.  True 
trees  of  Liberty,  they  have  grown  up  with  the  Nation,  and  still  stand  in  majestic  beauty, 
living  witnesses  to  the  patriotism  and  devotion  of  the  women  of  Windham  County. 

Married  in  Windham,  as  his  second  wife,  March  5,  1766,  SAMUEL  MC  CLEL- 
LAN,  born  January  4,  1730,  in  Worcester,  Mass.;  died  September  17,  1807,  in 
Woodstock,  Conn. ;  buried  there.  His  parents  emigrated  from  Kircudbright,  on 
the  Firth  of  Solway  in  Scotland.  He  married  (1)  November  16,  1757,  Jemima 
Chandler,  by  whom  he  had  children:  Samuel,  William,  Lemuel  and  Polly.  He 
married  (3)  July  3,  1798,  Mrs.  Eunice  Folunsbee  of  Worcester. 

Samuel  MeClellan  served  as  Ensign  and  Lieutenant  of  a  company  in  the 
French  war  and  was  wounded  in  battle.  Upon  his  return  from  the  provincial 
campaign  he  purchased  a  farm  in  Woodstock,  married  and  settled  there.  He 
later  engaged  in  mercantile  business  and  established  an  extensive  trade,  import- 
ing his  own  goods  and  supplying  neighboring  merchants.  When  the  Revolution 
put  a  stop  to  his  trade  he  trained  and  equipped  the  countj^  militia.  A  fine  troop 
of  horse  was  raised  in  Woodstock,  Pomfret  and  Killingly,  of  which  he  became 
commander.  He  rose  by  promotions  until  1784  when  he  was  Brigadier-General 
of  the  5th  Brigade,  Connecticut  militia.  In  1776  his  regiment  was  ordered  into 
service  and  stationed  in  and  about  New  Jersey.  He  was  solicited  by  General 
Washington  to  join  the  Continental  Army  and  was  offered  an  important  com- 
mission biit  his  domestic  and  business  affairs  compelled  him  to  refuse.  After 
the  invasion  and  burning  of  New  London  and  the  massacre  at  Fort  Groton,  he 
was  appointed  over  the  troops  stationed  at  those  points  and  continued  the  com- 
mand until  the  close  of  the  war,  acting  as  commissary  in  the  purchase  and  for- 
warding of  provisions  for  the  army  when  not  otherwise  in  active  service.  He 
returned  to  mercantile  business  after  the  war  bitt  soon  gave  it  up  to  manage 
his  extensive  estates.  He  was  highly  esteemed  as  a  Christian  gentleman  and 
was  honored  by  his  townsmen  by  many  important  offices.

74  Abbe- Abbey  Genealogy 

epitaph,  from  the  okl  Windham  burying-ground,  gives  a  clear  account  of  this 
worthy  citizen: 

In  memory  of  SHUBAEL  ABBE,  Esq.,  who  died  suddenly  April  16,  1804,  aged  59. 
He  graduated  at  Yale  College  in  1764.  He  was  several  years  in  the  business  of 
merchandise,  and  by  his  own  exertion  became  largely  engaged  in  husbandry.  In  1783 
he  was  appointed  Sheriff  of  the  County  of  Windham  and  continued  in  the  most 
unexceptionable  manner  to  discharge  the  duties  of  that  office  till  his  death.  He  was 
often  chosen  a  Representative  of  the  town,  in  1798,  he  was  appointed  by  the  Presi- 
dent one  of  the  Commissioners  of  the  land  tax.  And  by  the  Assembly  one  of  the 
Committee  to  manage  the  school  funds.  In  domestic  life  he  was  indulgent  and  decisive. 
In  public  business,  active,  punctual,  and  correct.  In  his  attachment  to  civil  and 
religious  institutions  he  was  exemplary,  and  to  the  poor  and  afflicted  humane  and 
generous.  His  abilities  and  integrity  secured  to  him  the  esteem  and  confidence  of  his 
feUow  Citizens,  and  his  death  was  extensively  and  deeply  regretted. 

He  left  a  widow,  three  sons  and  five  daughters  to  mourn  an  irreparable  loss. 

Tears  flow  nor  cease  where  Abbe's  ashes  sleep, 
For  him  a  wife  and  tenderest  children  weep, 
And  Justly — for  few  shall  ever  him  transcend, 
A  husband,  parent,  and  a  faithful  friend. 

He  received  the  degree  A.B.  from  Yale  College  in  1764  and  A.M.  in  1767. 

His  inventory,  taken  May  8,  1804,  denotes  an  estate  of  $29,412.85;  papers 
mentioning  the  widow  and  children.  (Windham  Probate  Records,  Vol.  15,  pages 
111,  176,  362,  468.) 

The  following  letter,  found  among  some  old  papers  by  Dr.  J.  H.  Weeks  of

November  22,  1746,  in  Nortli  Windham,  Conn. ;  died  June  19,  1800.  Mr.  Phineas 
Abbe  Departed  this  Life  17*^^  day  of  June  on  Tuesday  in  the  afternoon  at  four 
o'clock  in  the  54  j'ear  of  his  age  1800.  (Bible  Record.)  He  was  a  respected 
and  prosperous  farmer  of  Windham,  took  an  active  part  in  all  matters  of  public 
welfare,  held  various  civil  offices,  including  that  of  jailer.  During  the  Revolu- 
tion he  had  at  one  time  some  English  prisoners  who  ornamented  tlie  wall  of 
their  room  or  cell  with  a  fine  large  picture  of  their  ship.  It  was  later  revealed 
that  this  was  only  to  conceal  efforts  they  were  making  to  remove  a  portion 
of  the  wall  and  make  their  escape.  When  they  finally  succeeded  in  getting 
away,  tliey  left  word  to  their  jailer  that  they  were  about  to  sail  soon. 

At  his  death  his  property  was  inventoried  at  $9,919.40,  with  325  acres  of 
land.  The  inventory,  taken  October  12,  1801,  is  a  most  interesting  document 
with  its  long  enumeration  of  articles  of  furniture  and  Avearing  apparel,  among 
which  were  chairs  and  tables  of  several  kinds,  six  fiddle-back  chairs,  silver 
knee-buckles  and  plated  shoe-buckles.  The  property  was  distributed  to  the 
widow,  Susannah,  and  children:  Mary  Taintor,  Joshua,  Lucy,  Thomas,  George, 
Charles,  Moses,  Lucius,  Henry  and  Samuel.  (Windham  Probate  Records,  Vol.

120.  JOSHUA^  ABBE,  JR.,  son  of  Joshua*  and  Mary  (Ripley)  Abbe,  born 
in  Windham,  Conn.,  January  9,  1751.  He  was  a  man  of  strong  religious  impulses, 
opposed  to  orthodox  preaching,  and  became  a  preacher  of  the  Christian  denomi- 


Fifth  Generation  77 

nation,  or,  as  it  was  at  times  called,  the  Congregational  Baptist.  In  1826  he  was 
on  the  register  of  preachers.  Larncd's  History  of  Windham  County,  page  221, 
"Vol.  2,  says  this : 

In  the  north  part  of  Winilhani,  whioh  was  now  becoming  a  populous  neighborhood,  a 
remarkable  worship  was  conducted  by  Joshua  Abbe.  Rev.  Moses  Cook  Welch  of  Mansfield 
represented  '-these  Abbe-itcs  as  a  sect  of  Baptists,  differing  from  any  and  all  of  that 
denomination  that  had  ever  risen  in  any  age,  having  no  communication  even  with  other 
Baptist  churches.  Their  meetings  were  characterized  by  jargon,  disorder  and  great 
confusion  ;  all  were  allowed  to  speak  at  pleasure,  women  as  well  as  men,  three,  four,  or 
six  sometimes  speaking  at  once,  while  groans,  sobs,  and  sighs  were  reiterated  by  others." 

As  the  Rev.  Moses  Cook  Welch  Avas  an  orthodox  preacher  of  the  same 
neighborhood  and  entered  into  violent  controversy  over  these  unorthodox 
preachers,  we  may  believe  that  this  account  may  have  been  somewhat  colored 
by  his  personal  feelings. 

In  the  Census  of  1800,  he  is  doubtless  the  Joshua  Abbe  of  Windham,  with  a 
family  of  15. 

Joshua  Abbe  resided  in  North  Windham  on  his  father's  home  farm  and  later 
emigrated  to  Leroy,  N.  Y.,  where  he  died.  A  settlement  was  made  between  his 
widow  and  George  W.  Abbe,  administrator,  October  15,  1836.  (Windham

April  14,  1758,  in  Mansfield,  Conn.;  died  at  Hall's  Corners,  N.  Y.,  August  6, 
1833.  He  enlisted  from  Mansfield,  April,  1775,  for  one  month;  June,  1775,  for 
six  months,  under  Lieutenant  Dana,  Colonel  Storrs;  December  1,  1775,  to 
January  1,  1777,  under  Captain  John  Keyes,  Colonel  John  Durkee;  was  at  the 
capture  of  the  Hessians  at  Trenton.  One  of  his  descendants,  Mr.  Gehial  Hall 
Abbey,  has  the  chest  which  he  carried  during  his  service  in  the  Revolution.  On 
April  19,  1818,  William  Abbey  applied  for  a  pension,  at  that  time  being  a  resident 
of  Onondaga  County,  N.  Y.  In  pension  papers  of  1820,  mention  was  made  of 
his  children:  Nathan,  aged  33:  Isabel,  aged  22;  Lydia,  aged  20;  and  a  gTand- 
child,  Eunice  Abbe,  "all  of  which  I  provide  for  and  support  besides  myself, 
who  have  not  done  a  day 's  work  this  twelve  years  past  on  account  of  infirmity. ' ' 
In  sjiite  of  this  infirmity,  he  seems  to  have  been  well-to-do,  as  he  owned  property 
worth  $68.75  and  owed  but  $12.00.  His  name  is  on  the  tablet  in  memory  of  the 
Revolutionary  soldiers  of  Onondaga  County,  in  the  Post  Office  at  Syracuse. 
The  Census  of  1790  records  him  at  Duanesburg,  Albany  County,  N.  Y.,  1  male 
over  16,  3  males  under  16,  3  females  in  the  family.     In  1810  he  was  of  the  town

had  been  engaged  in  the  manufacture  of  potash  and  pearlash  and  had  learned

Oneida  Co."  John  and  Ruth  Abbey  with  other  settlers  subscribed  to  a  docu- 
ment in  1839.  His  will,  made  March  5,  1854,  probated  December  7,  1854,  calls 
him  of  Madison  County,  and  names  wife  Ruth,  and  children:  Edwin,  George, 
Maria  Terry,  Henry,  Ira,  and  Mary  Loomis.  He  may  be  John  Abbe}^,  the 
Lieutenant  for  133d  Regiment,  April  24,  1818,  Chenango  and  Delaware  Counties, 
N.  Y.,  and  Captain  of  193d  Regiment,  1820.

159.  JONATHAN'  ABBEY,  3D,  son  of  Jonathan*,  jr.,  and  Alice  (Johnson) 
Abbey,  born  February  2G,  1853,  in  AVillington,  Conn.;  died  October  5,  1807,  at 
Olive  (Shokan),  N.  Y.  He  was  probably  living  at  Ashford,  Conn.,  at  the  time 
of  the  1790  Census,  2  males  over  18,  3  males  under  18,  5  females  in  the  family. 
In  the  1800  Census  he  is  recorded  with  1  male  and  1  female  over  45,  1  male 
and  2  females  between  16  and  26,  and  1  male  between  10  and  16.  He  removed 
to  Shokan,  Ulster  County,  N.  Y.,  in  1802. 

The  story  is  told  in  the  family  that  Jonathan  Abbey  was  in  the  company  of 
patriots  with  General  Israel  Putnam  when,  on  February'  26,  1779,  General  Putnam 
escaped  from  1500  English  and  Tories  by  running  his  horse  doAvn  a  hundred 
steps  in  the  rock  at  Horseneek  Hill,  Greenwich,  Conn.  Jonathan  said  that 
Putnam  told  his  men  to  look  out  for  themselves,  to  retreat  as  best  they  could, 
and  that  he,  being  mounted,  would  take  care  of  himself.  The  British  broke 
in  upon  the  company,  who  ran  into  a  swamp,  and  Putnam  started  off,  closely 
pursued  by  dragoons.  Presently  pistol  shots  were  heard,  Putnam  dashed  down 
the  rocky  steps,  and  the  company  never  expected  to  behold  him  alive  again, 
but  soon  they  were  delighted  to  see  him  come  cantering  back  as  if  nothing 
had  hajipened,  and  with  no  wound  greater  than  a  bullet-hole  through  his 
three-cornered  hat.

Fifth  Generation  103 

175.  OBADIAH''  ABBE,  son  of  Thomas*  and  Penelope  (Terry)  Abbe,  born 
June  15,  1752,  in  Enfield,  Conn.  Lived  at  Warehouse  Point.  He  appears  to 
have  left  Enfield  after  about  1783  as  no  further  records  of  his  family  appear 
there.  One  account  says  he  moved  from  the  Ferry  ' '  out  west. "  He  is  probably 
the  Obadiah  Abbe  who  was  recorded  in  the  1790  Census  in  East  Windsor, 
Conn.,  1  male  over  16,  2  males  under  16,  4  females  in  his  family. 

Married  JANE  MC  CLESTER.  Stiles'  Ancient  Windsor  wrongly  records  that 
Charles  Abbe  married  Jane  Maclester,  only  child  of  an  Irish  merchant,  and  had 
daughters,  Jane,  born  January  6,  1780,  and  Sally,  born  October  1,  1792.  Mr. 
James  Allen  Kibbe  proves  this  error  by  an  examination  of  the  records  in 
Enfield  and  Hartford.  He  finds  that  James  McClester  left  an  estate  settled 
between  October  20,  1778,  and  June  13,  1786,  mentioning  a  widow,  Elizabeth, 
and  children,  James,  John,  Jane,  wife  of  Obadiah  Abbe,  and  Eleanor,  wife  of 
Elihu  Geer.     (Found  in  Hartford  probate  files  and  partly  in  Book  23.)

born  in  Enfield,  Conn.,  March  24,  1755.  One  account  gives  the  death  of 
Penelope  Abbe  May  17,  1759.  If  so,  there  must  have  been  two  daughters  of 
that  name.

May  17,   1824,   son   of  Ebenezer  and  Mary    (         )    Bicknell.     He   married    (2)

15  he  w^as  mail  carrier  from  Jackson,  Mo.,  to  Golconda,  111.,  working  half  the 
year  to  defray  the  expenses  of  his  schooling  the  other  half.  At  19  he  went

chased a  cotton  plantation.  Since  early  life  he  had  been  a  Methodist  and

prosecuting  a  claim  against  the  United  States  in  favor  of  tlie  M.  E.  Cliurch 
South.  In  1876  failing  health  compelled  him  to  retire  from  active  service  and 
to  be  put  tipon  the  supernumerary  list.  He  made  his  home  thereafter  in  Yazoo 
City,  Miss.  He  was  always  a  hard  and  industrious  student  and  is  the  author

136  Abbe- Abbey  Genealogy 

Waterman,  grandson  of  Nehemiah  and  Sarali  (Gifford)  Waterman,  great-grand- 
son of  Ensign  Thomas  and  Elizabeth  (Allyii)  Waterman,  great-great-grandson 
of  Lieutenant  Thomas  and  Miriam  (Tracey)  Waterman,  and  great-great-great- 
grandson  of  Robert  and  Martha  (Bourne)  Waterman,  Robert  Waterman  came 
from  Norwich,  England,  in  1636  and  settled  in  Marshfield,  Mass.  Martha  Bourne 
was  a  sister  of  the  wife  of  Governor  Bradford's  son,  John  Bradford.  Lieutenant 
Thomas  Waterman  was  one  of  the  original  proprietors  of  Norwich,  Conn.  Elijah 
Watemian  was  graduated  from  Yale  College  in  1791,  and  taught  in  Hartford  for 
a  year.  He  had  intended  to  study  law  but  decided  to  take  up  theology  instead. 
He  was  licensed  to  preach  in  Preston,  Conn.,  May,  1793,  and  continued  his 
studies,  preaching  as  supply,  until  1794,  when  he  took  charge  of  the  church 
at  Windham.  He  continued  its  pastor  for  ten  years,  and,  after  a  short  period 
of  supply  at  New  Milford,  he  was  called  to  the  church  at  Bridgeport,  where  he 
remained  until  the  close  of  his  life.  He  was  known  as  an  earnest,  independent, 
public-spirited  man,  highly  esteemed  as  a  preacher.  Several  of  his  sermons 
and  orations  were  published.  He  collected  materials  for  a  history  of  Windham 
which  unfortunately  became  scattered  and  were  never  used.  While  he  was 
pastor  at  Windham  he  made  a  trip  to  the  western  part  of  New  York  State  in 
order  to  secure  copies  of  early  Windham  Church  records  and  he  made  a  copy 
of  those  records  as  far  as  he  could  obtain  them  at  the  time. 

He  married  (2)  MRS.  LUCY  (WOLCOTT)  TALCOTT  of  Springfield,  widow 
of  Captain  Henry  Talcott  of  Windsor,  by  whom  he  had  one  daughter,  Lucy, 
who  married  Henry  Thomas.

251.  JOSHUA«  ABBE,  son  of  Phineas^  and  Mary  (Bingham)  Abbe,  born 
February  15,  1775,  on  tlie  farm  south  of  Windham  Center,  Conn.,  later  bought 
by  his  brother  George;  died  at  East  Thomaston  (Rockland),  Maine,  January  20, 
1849.  At  14  he  was  a  clerk  with  a  Mr.  Woodbridge  in  Norwich,  where  he 
probably  remained  until  he  was  21.  He  then  went  to  New  London,  and  about 
1802  to  New  Gloucester,  Maine,  with  Godfrey  Grosvenor.  In  1832  he  moved  to 
Bangor  and  after  eight  years,  having  retired  from  business,  he  broke  up  house- 
keeping and  went  to  live  with  his  daughter  at  Rockland,  then  East  Thomaston. 
He  was  a  successful  merchant,  though  not  well  known  outside  of  his  immediate 
circle  of  friends,  owing  to  his  retiring  disposition  which  led  him  to  refuse  offers 
of  public  office. 

Married  in  Hudson,  N.  Y.,  August  15,  1815,  MARCIA  GROSVENOR,  born 
October  23,  1770;  died  December  20,  1857.  She  was  the  daughter  of  Seth 
and  Abigail  (Keyes)  Grosvenor  of  Potnfret,  Conn.

252.  GEORGE''  ABBE,  son  of  PliineasS  and  Susanna  (Brown)  Abbe,  born 
in  Windham,  Conn.,  May  17,  1781;  died  in  Windham,  September,  1851.  He 
resided  for  many  years  in  New  York  City,  where  he  was  a  member  of  tlie  firm 
of  Hill,  Fish  and  Abbe,  a  transportation  company  between  New  York  and  Phila- 
delphia.  Mr.  Hill  of  the  firm  attended  to  its  interests  in  Philadelphia,  Mr.  Fish 
at  Trenton,  and  Mr.  Abbe  at  New  York.  Boats  were  used  between  New  York 
and  Perth  Amboy  and  these  were  in  charge  of  Captain  Jacob  Vanderbilt  and 
his  brother  Cornelius,  afterwards  known  as  Commodore.  From  Amboy  pas- 
sengers were  taken  to  Philadelphia  in  coaches.  The  transportation  company  was 
merged  into  the  Camden  and  Amboy  Railroad  when  that  was  built.  It  was  the 
first  passenger  railroad  in  the  United  States.  Mr.  Samuel  Badger  Abbe,  then 
a  mere  child,  was  taken  on  the  excursion  train  that  he  might  ride  on  the 
first  passenger  car  in  America.  Mr.  Abbe  moved  to  Windham  in  1835.  He 
had  a  large  fortune,  as  fortunes  went  in  those  days,  when  he  left  New  York, 
but  much  of  it  disappeared  before  his  death  in  various  enterprises  with  which 
he  was  connected. 

Married  CHARLOTTE  HACKSTAFF,  born  November  19,  1798,  at  Sing  Sing, 
N.  Y.,  daughter  of  Lodowick  and  Anne  (Halleck)  Hackstaff;   died  January,  1865.

Samuel  Badger-  Alhe,  b.  in  New  York  City,  Nov.  25,  1829  ;  d.  at  Fort  Snelling, 
Minn.,  Oct.  4,  1864.  Married  at  Scotland,  Conn.,  Aug.  25,  1858,  Abby  Fuller, 
b.  at  Scotland,  March  15,  1833.  She  resides  in  St.  Paul,  Minn.  The  following 
account  of  Mr.  Abbe's  life  is  taken  from  a  letter  of  Mrs.  Abbe : 

"Of  the  early  life  of  my  husband  I  know  little,  only  he  was  placed  at  school 
when  be  was  six  years  of  age,  somewhere  up  the  Hudson,  and  later  attended 
school  at  Pomfret,  Conn.,  perhaps  elsewhere.  From  a  few  old  letters  to  his 
brother,  I  find  that  he  sailed  from  New  York  to  California,  Nov.  17,  1849,  in 
company  with  a  young  man  of  his  own  age,  barely  twenty.  The  boat  had  been 
fitted  for  them  with  the  intention  of  its  being  placed  on  the  Sacramento  River 
when  they  arrived.  Evidently  it  was  unfit  for  ocean  travel  as  it  was  so  small  it 
could  only  carry  fuel  from  port  to  port.  After  going  through  the  Straits  of 
Magellan  with  great  difficulty  and  danger,  they  landed  at  Panama,  July  7,  1850, 
eight  months  from  New  York,  and  one  month  later  reached  San  Francisco.  The 
boat  fulfilled  its  intention  and  was  placed  on  the  Sacramento  River  and  was  a 
financial  success. 

"Mr.  Abbe  remained  in  California  until  early  in  1852.  His  father's  death  had 
occurred  a  short  time  before,  and,  urged  by  his  mother,  he  went  home  to  look 
after  his  father's  estate.  He  crossed  the  Isthmus  on  his  return,  a  rough  trip  at 
that  time.  He  remained  in  Windham  until  the  spring  of  1853  when  he  went  to 
St.  Paul,  met  with  a  severe  accident  that  detained  him  there  some  mouths, 
abandoned  the  idea  of  returning  to  California,  decided  to  remain  in  the  then 
young  territory  of  Minnesota,  and,  like  all  the  young  men  there,  lent  himself 
to  the  work  of  building  up  a  new  state.  He  was  a  member  of  the  Legislature, 
a  delegate  to  Railroad  and  State  Conventions,  laid  out  town  sites  and  many  other 
matters  pertaining  to  the  youth  of  a  new  country.  A  year  or  two  later,  a  sale 
was  made  of  the  large  military  reservation  at  Fort  Ripley  on  the  upper  Missis- 
sippi, in  which  he  became  interested,  and,  in  1860,  built  a  house  there,  pre- 
paratory to  starting  a  ranch,  but  before  his  plans  were  completed,  the  Civil  War 
broke  out.  The  regular  troops  were  ordered  away,  in  consequence  came  the 
Indian  outbreak  which  swept  the  entire  state.  They  burned  the  Missions,  drove 
off  the  settlers  and  moved  down  to  the  Agency.  The  Government  Agent,  crazed 
with  fright,  committed  suicide  and  the  country  was  left  to  frontiersmen.  We 
went  into  the  Post,  Fort  Ripley,  which  was  garrisoned  with  only  a  few  raw 
recruits.  After  days  and  weeks  of  suspense,  the  Commissioner  of  Indian  affairs, 
with  Mr.  Nicolay,  Private  Secretary  to  President  Lincoln,  and  a  few  troops, 
came  to  our  relief.  Even  then,  after  long  delay,  the  Chiefs  met  them  in  council, 
they  were  all  surrounded,  and  barely  escaped  with  their  lives,  as  Mr.  Nicolay 
wrote  afterwards  in  an  article  in  Harper's  Monthly.

"Mr.  Abbe  never  recovered  from  the  labor  and  suspense  involved.  We  never 
returned  to  our  home  but  went  to  St.  Paul.  Mr.  Abbe  went  to  Washington, 
made  a  hasty  visit  to  AVindham  and  went  with  the  Commissioner  of  Indian 
Affairs  and  other  officials  to  the  Red  River,  where  the  Indians  were  turbulent, 
to  make  a  treaty.  He  took  a  sevei'e  cold  from  which  he  never  recovered.  He  was 
given  officer's  quarters  at  Fort  SneUing  where  he  lived  for  some  months,  and  in 
that  gray  old  fort,  that  had  seen  so  many  tragedies,  his  adventurous  and  promis- 
ing life  ended."

261.  JESSE"  ABBEY,  son  of  Joshua^,  jr.,  and  Tryphena  (Bass)  Abbe,  born

Mich.  He  removed  to  Ohio  and  later  to  Michigan,  where  he  kept  a  hotel  and 
was  a  well-known  character  for  many  years.  He  was  one  of  the  pioneers  in 
Antwerp  and  his  log  hostelry  was  well  known  throughout  the  country.  The 
frugal  fare  of  the  day  and  a  bottle  of  whiskey  were  the  chief  elements  in  the 
entertainment  of  the  stage-coach  passengers  or  the  foot-travelers  who  stopped 
at  these  wayside  inns.    One  day  a  traveler  put  up  with  the  hospitable  old  land- 


144  Abbe- Abbey  Genealogy 

lord,  and,  as  he  went  in,  told  him  he  had  no  money,  but  would  pay  him  some 
day.  The  old  gentleman  replied:  "Stay?  Of  course  you  can  stay,  and  pay  me 
when  you  can.  I've  had  lots  of  customers,  but  never  turned  one  away."  Some 
time  later,  the  traveler  called,  and,  as  he  offered  the  money  due  Mr.  Abbey  on 
the  old  score,  said,  * '  Do  you  remember  me  ?  I  stopped  here  and  could  not  pay. ' ' 
''I  don't  remember,"  said  Mr.  Abbey,  "but  lots  of  folks  have  done  that  thing 
here.  Maybe  you  did.  You  can  pay  what  you  please."  On  receiving  the 
money,  the  old  innkeeper  exclaimed:  "Hurrah  for  an  honest  man.  Such  a 
thing  has  never  happened  to  me  since  I've  kept  tavern.  I've  trusted  hundreds 
of  people  for  their  fare,  and  that  has  been  the  end  of  the  matter.  If  there 
was  a  newspaper  published  anywhere  in  these  parts,  I'd  put  this  in  sure." 

There  was  a  settlement  of  "Buckeyes"  or  Wesleyan  Methodists  in  Antwerp 
district.  Jesse  Abbey  had  joined  this  sect,  and  was  considered  a  kind  of 
patriarchal  chief  among  them.  His  hair  was  gray,  long,  and  thin.  He  wore 
a  straw  hat  winter  and  summer,  and  usually,  in  meeting,  seated  himself  by 
the  side  of  the  minister,  his  straw  hat  on  his  head;  and  if  anything  in  the 
sermon  pleased  him,  he  would  exclaim:  "Good,  that's  right;  ha,  ha,"  clapping 
his  hands  in  exultant  emotion.  Other  leaders  in  the  church  were  Father  Libby 
and  Johnny  Johnson.  There  was  a  strife  between  them  and  Father  Abbey  as 
to  who  could  talk  or  exhort  the  best  in  meeting. 

Johnny  Johnson  could  not  write,  and  used  to  get  his  friends  to  write  letters 
for  him.  On  one  occasion,  after  the  letter  was  written,  directed,  and  sealed, 
Johnson  started  home  but  returned  in  a  short  time,  sajdng  there  was  something 
he  forgot  to  put  in  the  letter.  The  writer  protested  against  opening  it  as  it 
was  folded  into  envelope  shape  and  sealed,  but  Johnson  said  it  was  very 
important  and  must  be  added  to  the  letter.  So  the  seal  was  broken  and  this 
sentence  added:  "Tell  them  that  it  is  nick-el-ty  tuckey  with  Father  Abbey 
and  me  as  to  who  can  talk  the  best  in  meetin'."  This  important  message  was 
added  to  the  letter,  it  was  refolded,  and  sent  to  the  friends  in  Ohio. 

The  1850  Census  records  him  as  a  farmer  of  Antwerp.  In  1845  he  sent  to 
school  an   "adopted  son,"   Ben  Wait.

with  his  family,  crossing  the  Mississippi  on  the  ice  in  February.  He  finally 
settled  upon  land  in  Mount  Vernon,  Linn  County,  Iowa,  then  a  wild  prairie 
with  no  white  inhabitants.  There  were  several  hundred  Winnebago  Indians 
living  in  that  vicinity.  Mr.  Abbe  was  always  friendly  with  them.  In  the  season 
of  maple  sugar  making  there  would  often  be  as  many  as  five  hundred  Indians 
camped  around  his  door-yard.  Mr.  Abbe  had  a  fine  lot  of  maples  and  allowed 
the  Indians  to  tap  the  trees,  reserving  what  he  needed  for  his  own  use.  This 
reservation  was  never  encroached  upon. 

Mr.  Abbe  was  elected  Justice  of  the  Peace  in  the  new  settlement;  acted  as 
sheriff  and  his  house  was  used  to  hold  criminals  until  the  first  county  jail  was 
built.  He  was  elected  to  the  Legislature  and  served  two  terras.  In  1849  he 
went  with  a  party  to  the  California  gold  fields.  He  returned  in  1851,  by  way 
of  Cape  Horn;  was  shipwrecked  and  lost  nearly  all  he  had;  but  the  following 
year  found  him  again  on  his  way  to  the  gold  fields,  going  by  way  of  Panama 
and  taking  his  oldest  son,  Andrew.  They  went  to  San  Benito,  Calif.,  and  engaged 
in  ranching  and  cattle-raising.  He  died  while  on  a  business  trip  to  Sacramento. 
He  was  a  member  of  the  Masonic  order  and  had  much  to  do  with  the  early 
history  of  Linn  County.

voyage  to  California,  through  the  canals  and  down  the  St.  Lawrence  River  to 
Quebec,  then  down  the  Gulf  of  St.  Lawrence  to  the  Atlantic  Ocean.  When  they 
arrived  at  Cape  Horn  they  were  obliged  to  ''double"  it,  owing  to  the  dense 
fog  prevailing,  instead  of  the  shorter  route  through  the  Straits  of  Magellan.

home  on  tlie  "Republic"  bound  for  Panama.  In  mid-ocean  she  sprang  a  leak, 
was  kept  afloat  by  hard  pumping  and  ran  ashore  at  Acapulco  Bay,  where  she 
sank  soon  after  the  passengers  had  been  removed.  Crossing  the  Isthmus  the 
party  sailed  for  New  York  and  thence  home  by  rail  after  an  absence  of  about 
three  j^ears.

326.  SARAH«  (or  SALLY)  ABBEY,  daughter  of  Jonathan^  Abbey,  3d,  and 
Mrs.  Lucy  (Knox)  Robbins,  born  August  1,  1784,  in  Ashford,  Conn.;  recorded 
there;  died  in  Mason ville,  N.  Y.,  1829.  Most  of  her  married  life  was  spent 
in  or  near  Guilford,  N.  Y.,  but  in  her  last  years  she  removed  to  Masonville. 
There  are  extant  several  of  her  letters  to  her  children,  now  in  the  possession 
of  Mrs.  Dora  Walker,  Mrs.  Josiah  Still  and  Mr.  Edwin  W.  Burch.  They  are 
wonderful  letters  in  point  of  the  extreme  poverty  that  seems  to  have  been  her 
lot,  and  5^et  the  fortitude  and  Christian  hope  in  which  she  lived  are  no  less 
wonderful.  Some  of  her  older  children  had  gone  out  to  Chautauqua  County, 
a  son  had  established  himself  there  and  some  of  his  sisters  had  gone  out  there 
to  work  in  the  families  of  former  neighbors  who  had  moved  to  near  Westfield. 

Married  JOHN  BROWN.  He  died  in  1827  or  1828.  A  family  tradition  says 
he  was  lost  at  sea.

perhaps  lives  in  Buffalo.

581  Nancy  L.  Brown,  b.  Aug.  25,  1822 ;    m.  Ezra  Westcott. 

Newman  Alheij  Brown,  b.  1824;  d.  in  California  about  1900;  m.  Eliza  A.  Whitman. 
Children  :  Three  who  d.  young  and  a  fourth,  b.  and  d.  on  the  voyage  from  New 
York  to  California,  around  Cape  Horn. 

He  possessed  unusual  ability  as  a  salesman  and  was  the  owner  of  two  very 
successful  stores,  one  in  Madison  and  one  in  Boscobel,  Wis.  Trips  to  buy  goods 
in  these  early  days  required  a  long  time,  and  once  when  in  New  York  City,  where 
he  had  gone  to  purchase  goods,  he  chanced  to  consult  a  fortune  teller,  who  used 
cards.  After  shuffling  the  cards  she  told  him  there  had  been  or  was  to  be  a  death 
in  his  family.  Shuffling  them  a  second  time  she  told  him  the  same  thing.  After 
shuffling  the  third  time,  she  said  nothing  but  the  expression  on  her  face  frightened 
him,  and  he  entered  upon  the  journey  back  to  Wisconsin  as  soon  as  possible. 
Upon  his  arrival  he  learned  that  one  of  his  children  had  died  on  a  certain  Wednes- 
day and  was  buried  the  following  Friday ;  a  second  child  had  died  on  the  following 
Wednesday  and  had  been  buried  the  Friday  following ;  the  third  child  had  died 
shortly  before  his  arrival  and  was  ready  for  burial. 

This  experience  shortly  thereafter  affected  his  mind  so  that  his  business  could  not 
be  properly  carried  on  and  he  lost  both  stores.  After  a  time,  with  the  approval  of 
his  faithful  wife,  he  decided  to  go  to  California  and  take  up  life  anew.  They 
sailed  from  New  York  Harbor  around  Cape  Horn.  There  was  born  to  them  on 
the  journey  another  child,  but  it  died  almost  at  birth  and  was  buried  at  sea. 
Arriving  in  California,  the  change,  for  a  time,  seemed  to  be  beneficial  to  him. 
With  his  limited  capital  he  would  buy  the  entire  outfit  of  city  trucksters,  and,  with 
his  native  ability  to  sell  things,  would  retail  it  always  at  a  profit.  But  as  time 
went  on,  he  consulted  mediums  and  various  kinds  of  fortune  tellers  who  relieved 
him  of  much  of  his  scanty  means.  After  quite  a  long  time  he  became  unable  to 
provide  for  his  vsafe  and  she  was  obliged  to  return  to  her  own  family  in  the  east. 
His  latest  years  were  passed  with  his  mind  entirely  unbalanced. 


327.  JOHN"  ABBEY,  son  of  Jonathan^  Abbey  and  Mrs.  Lucy  (Knox)  Rob- 
bins,  born  November  IS,  1789,  in  Ashford,  Conn.;  died  October  5,  1841,  at 
the  home  of  his  son,  Stephen,  in  Rondout,  N.  Y.  He  was  living  near  Rockdale 
on  the  Unadilla  River  about  1822.  He  had  a  first-rate  team  that  was  admired 
by  everyone  who  saw  it.  Knowing  about  this  team,  the  two  Assemblymen  of 
the  vicinity  engaged  Mr.  Abbey  to  take  them  from  Unadilla  to  Albany,  a 
distance  of  a  hundred  miles.  On  the  day  appointed  Mr.  Abbey  met  them  at 
the  village  inn.  When  the  hostler  brought  the  team  around  to  the  door,  and 
the  party  came  out  to  start  on  their  journey,  the  Assemblymen  complained  to 
Mr.  Abbey  about  the  general  appearance  of  the  turn-out.  They  said  that  the 
horses  were  fine,  but  the  sleigh  was  a  miserable,  old-fashioned  affair,  and  the 
harness  was  worse.  "Well,  gentlemen,"  said  Mr.  Abbey,  "I  am  much  mistaken 
if  you  are  more  ashamed  of  me  along  the  road  than  I  shall  be  of  you  when 
you  get  to  Albany." 

Dominie  Mason  of  Rondout  liked  a  fine  horse,  and,  knowing  that  John  Abbey 
did  too,  drove  up  where  he  was  standing  one  day,  and  said,  ''There,  Mr.  Abbey, 
what  do  you  think  of  my  horse?"  "I  think,"  said  Mr.  Abbey,  "that  he  is 
in  strong  contrast  with  the  one  your  Master  rode  into  Jerusalem  on."

Sixth  Generation  187 

ber  10,  1838,  for  his  activities  iia  the  Patriots'  War.  He  was  a  printer  by  trade, 
lived  in  Albany,  N.  Y.,  and  later  in  Watertown  and  Oswego,  at  the  time  of  his 
death  was  a  resident  of  Panielia,  Jefferson  County.  In  1815  a  monthly  news- 
paper called  "The  Friend"  was  i)ublished  by  Dorrephus  Abbey  and  his  brother, 
Seth  Alden  Abbey,  in  Albany.  Dorrephus  Abbey  was  an  early  publisher  of  the 
Binghamton  Republican  Herald  before  1822.  In  1817  he  was  one  of  the 
founders  of  the  Jefferson  and  Lewis  Gazette  at  Watertown  and  in  1819  was 
instrumental  in  founding  the  Oswego  Palladium  at  Oswego.  He  took  an  active 
part  in  the  scheme  in  1837  for  freeing  Canada  from  the  English  Government, 
known  as  the  Patriots'  War.  Jefferson  County  was  the  scene  of  intense 
excitement  at  the  time  and  "Hunter  Lodges"  were  formed  in  every  village 
to  promote  the  Patriot  cause.  The  real  promotors  of  the  scheme  were  too 
cowardly  to  take  an  active  part  in  the  expeditions  and  the  punishment  fell 
upon  those  who  were  conscientious  in  assisting  what  they  believed  to  be  a 
worthj^  cause. 

There  were  some  serious  engagements  between  the  troops  or  militia  and  the 
insurgents,  and  of  these  the  most  severe  took  place  at  Prescott,  where  the  rebels 
had  taken  refuge  in  a  stone  wind-mill,  from  which  they  were  ultimately  driven 
by  fire  being  set  to  the  combustible  matter  in  the  lower  part  of  the  building. 
Many  Americans  who  sympathized  with  the  insurgents  took  part  in  the  battle. 
An  ej'e-witness  stated  that  he  counted  110  dead  bodies  on  the  snow,  on  the 
morning  after  the  battle.  Four  of  the  officers  of  the  expedition  were  captured, 
court-martialed  and  sentenced  to  be  hung.  Colonel  Abbey  is  said  to  have  met 
his  death  with  great  fortitude  and  the  papers  of  the  day  reveal  nothing  but 
respect  for  his  character  and  regret  that  his  life  should  have  been  a  sacrifice 
to  an  unfortunate  cause. 

The   following  letters   written  to  his   son  and   daughters   on   the   eve  of  his 

execution  have  fortunately  been  preserved: 

Fort  Henry  November  28,  1838. 
My  dear  son : 

I  this  moment  received  your  letter  by  the  hands  of  the  sheriff.  I  am  in  want  of  nothing 
but  what  my  friends  at  Watertown  have  already  provided.  Tell  your  dear  sisters  that 
one  or  both  of  them  had  better  go  to  Oswego.    As  for  yourself,  take  good  counsel 

Whatever  may  be  my  fate,  yon  must  exercise  firmness  and  resignation  commensurate 
to  the  trial ;  we  must  sooner  or  later  part ;  it  is  of  no  great  moment  when  and  in  what 
manner  I  take  my  exit.  If  my  life  is  sacrificed,  I  have  the  approbation  of  an  approving 
conscience,  having  been  governed  by  integrity  of  purpose.  Great  delusion  has,  however, 
been  entertained  in  relation  to  public  opinion  in  Canada.  They  are  not  prepared  for 
republican  institutions.    All  governments  should  conform  to  the  genius  of  the  people. 

Your  affectionate  father, 

Dorrephus  Abbey. 

Mr.  Abbey  to  his  son : 

Fort  Henry,  Tuesday  night,  Dec.  11,  1838. 

Arm  yourself  my  dear  boy  with  fortitude,  to  hear  the  sad  intelligence,  that  ere  these 
lines  meet  your  eye,  I  am  numbered  with  the  dead.  My  zeal  in  the  cause  of  universal 
freedom  has  eventually  cost  me  my  life.  But  let  it  be  remembered,  that  the  unfortunate 
expedition  I  was  engaged  in,  took  a  direction  contrary  to  my  views ;  but  in  this  affair 
you  can  take  no  interest  at  present,  or  at  any  other  time  further  than  my  reputation  is 
concerned  ;  time  will  develope  facts,  when  my  conduct  and  intentions  will  be  known  and 
appreciated. 

When  our  condition  became  hopeless,  I  could  then  have  taken  opportunity  to  have  made 
my  escape  across  the  line,  but  I  could  not  bear  the  thoughts  of  deserting  those  brave, 
and  many  of  them,  worthy  and  amiable  young  men  to  destruction ;  life,  thus  preserved, 
would  not  be  worth  possessing. 

In  relation  to  my  pecuniary  affairs,  you  must  be  frequently  with  and  advise  with  my 
friends'  counsel,  and  also  with  Mr.  Wiley,  and  if  it  should  be  necessary  to  sell  any  of 
my  real  estate,  let  the  village  property  be  sold  if  possible. 

As  regards  yourself,  cultivate  your  mind,  associate  with  honorable  men,  aim  high  and 
let  all  your  motives  be  of  an  exalted  character ;  and  now,  my  beloved  son,  I  bid  you 
adieu  for  ever.

To  his  daughters: 

December  11,  1838. 

My  dear  Daughters : 

Many  severe  trials  have  awaited  you  from  your  earhest  chihlhood,  but  that  which  you 
have  now  to  endure,  will  require  all  your  firmness ;  you  are  now  left  without  a  parent. 
Tomorrow  morning  closes  my  earthly  seenes.  You  have  to  bear  up  under  the  most 
tremendous  ordeal  that  the  mind  of  female  sensibihty  ever  endured.  But  I  have  the 
consolation  to  beheve,  that  your  fortitude  is  equal  to  every  contingency  and  event  of 
human  Ufe ;  without  the  exercise  of  such  sentiments,  existence  would  scarcely  be  a 
blessing.  I  leave  you  now  orphans  under  the  protection,  I  trust,  of  my  relations  and 
personal  friends.  I  particularly  commend  you  to  a  great  friend  of  your  mother,  Mrs. 
Woodruff.  Mr.  Wiley  wiU  no  doubt  take  much  interest  in  your  welfare.  I  write  from 
a  gloomy  cell,  lying  upon  a  bed  of  straw;  the  guard  will  soon  call  for  the  light,  and 
I  must  close.  Since  my  sentence,  I  could  not  procure  materials  for  writing,  till  this  late 
hour  of  my  existence,  which  have  just  been  furnished  me  by  an  officer  of  the  garrison, 
by  direction  of  the  sheriff.  Present  me  kindly  to  kindred  and  friends.  I  cannot  dis- 
criminate ;   so  farewell,  my  dear  children. 

Your  affectionate  father, 

Dorrephus  Abbey. 
To  AmeUa  Augusta  and  Arabella  Abbey. 

I  slept  soundly  and  quietly  last  night;  I  now  feel  as  though  I  could  meet  the  event 
with  composure.    The  guard  has  not  yet  called.

Westminster^  Abbey  and  his  father  before  him  have  kept  shop  on  Front  Street  since 
the  oldest  mariner  who  guides  his  ship  into  New  York  harbor  can  remember. 

For  over  eighty  years,  says  the  New  York  Mail,  the  "Westminster  Abbey"  sign  has 
blistered  in  sunshine  and  flapped  in  storm.  On  all  sides  of  the  shop  sit,  lean  and  tumble, 
the  most  remarkable  assortment  of  wares  ever  assembled  on  laud  or  sea. 

There  is  everything  from  a  paper  of  needles  to  a  sheet  anchor.  Overalls,  bisque  orna- 
ments, andirons,  neckties,  silver  pitchers,  writing  paper,  army  blankets,  Roman  swords, 
pearl  brooches,  paintings,  camping  outfits,  opera  glasses,  bottles  with  ships  in  them, 
teething  rings,  prayer  books,  oilskins,  jewelry,  cannon  balls,  muskets  and  cold  cream. 

"I'm  looking  for  Mr.  Abbey." 

"I'm  Westminstei',"  said  a  man  with  a  grizzled  gray  mustache,  merry  brown  eyes  and 
a  crippled  foot,  looking  up  from  a  cluttered  desk.     "Come  right  in  and  look  around." 

"But  I  came  to  ask  about  that  offer  of  Coney  Island  for  $500." 

Westminster  chuckled.  "Ho,  ho !  WeU,  it  was  a  fact  all  right.  Fifty-nine  years  ago," 
he  went  on,  making  some  subtractions  on  the  back  of  an  envelope,  "my  dad  was  asked 
to  buy  the  whole  of  Coney  for  $500.  The  very  spot  where  the  frankfurtei's  are  sizzling 
and  the  whirligigs  are  spinning  and  the  bathhouse  sharks  are  holding  folks  up  and  the 
sandgrabbers  are  charging  real  money  for  a  look  at  the  ocean  ! 

"Father  couldn't  see  any  use  buying  a  wind-swept,  snipe-breeding  sandy  waste  like 
that !  Nobody  went  down  there  except  to  shoot  birds  once  in  a  while.  New  York  had 
less  than  500,000  people  in  it. 

"There  wasn't  any  immigration  to  speak  of.  Nobody  dreamed  the  town  would  grow 
to  millions  of  population.    And  nobody  wanted  Coney  THEN!" 

The  purchase  of  Coney  was  not  the  only  wealth-weighted  suggestion  that  was  given 
gratis  to  the  Westminster  Abbey  family. 


Sixth  Generation  191 

The  grandfather  of  the  present  Westminster  lived  with  his  good  wife  up  in  Putnam 
County.  Wife  was  an  excellent  woman,  but  fussy  about  her  housekeeping.  When  a 
certain  poor  fur  trader  used  to  drop  into  the  Abbey  farmhouse,  Gran'ma  would  call  out: 
"Is  that  that  man  Astor  again?  If  he  stays  here,  he'll  have  to  take  his  meals  in  the 
outhouse  and  sleep  in  the  barn."  And  John  Jacob  Astor,  trapper  and  trader,  had  to 
abide  by  Ma  Abbey's  decision. 

He  took  it  in  good  part,  however,  quite  understandingly,  and  often  told  Grandfather 
Abbey  that  if  he'd  sell  out  his  holdings  in  upstate  land  and  buy  lots  in  the  little  growing 
town  of  New  York,  he'd  be  glad  of  it  some  day.
